    Just a quick update; this is being posted from the R-Pi itself!

    It's not pretty, it's not fast, but it's working!

    I could be well off the mark here, but a lot of the people who rushed to buy the first ones will be pleased to get the bugs to try and mend them! A bit like people who race old cars in the hopes they break down and they have to mend them......

    From the videos I have seen no it isnt. Lots of screen updating problems ect.

    I think its more of a programming device or special projects.

    At the moment, no, browsing is slow, I didn't even attempt YouTube! But your next quote...

    ..brings me to a point I want to make and @nephilim was probably hinting at - this is very early stages of development. At the moment, it works and that's all that matters, but I do think things will get better as the Debian arm is tweaked to the device. Obviously, we're not about to make these £25, 700Mhz ARM computers our main PCs! But look at what Android devices are capable of with the same power (albeit without driving 1080p displays!) - it can get better, but it isn't there yet.

    Just look at OpenELEC; with a streamlined backend, this is more than capable of running XBMC smoothly with full HD video.

    I'd really like to see if I can get Android running on this thing mind you...

    Oh, and here's a pic of it running; perhaps the first to visit EduGeek?

    If it helps you find it, the browser is Midori (doubt you get many hits from that one!)

    It's Debian Squeeze, unsure of the exact version I'm afraid but it's the latest on the Raspberry Pi site (here). I've packed it all away now but if you need more specifics I can update later on?

    We're showing 2 Debian visits today, but can't isolate the exact time I'm afraid.

    That's a shame... I'll boot it up later and see if I can find what it reports itself as
