    The swear word close to the top of page 4 may have caused the filter to kick in.

    Quite possibly, as I've said, it's early days yet, things will get better.

    That aside, it's still pretty incredible that you can buy a brand new computer for around £25; Of course it's not going to replace your £500+ work station, but I'm sure it'll find itself in many useful roles over the coming months

    Possibly yeah; I really don't like the R-Pi forums, full of smug "you don't even know that!?" types and trolls.

    indeed its brilliant at what they have done. i see it as ideal for running an XMBC type front end streaming from a NAS box for media in the home

    Yeah, at the very least it's a cheap home file server! Plug in a USB drive, install Debian (sans X) and away you go... cheap, energy efficient and silent!
