So, I searched a bit on the forum and found out that a few discussions have been made regarding the R-Pi. Nothing too fancy though, and I find it somewhat strange, considering this is a forum where most of the members are state-of-the-art in computer stuff.
In case this is the first time you've heard of the R-Pi, I would suggest reading this
Besides that, a normal question would be "why and how could an R-Pi be related to TI", and this is where the community comes.
You see, the R-Pi has 2 USB ports and an 10/100 ethernet controller. It also runs on linux with an ARM processor with 256MB ram.
So, in the hands of almost any inquisitive user, the R-Pi could easily serve as a Network Attached Storage and of course a Seedbox for your home needs. Although it does not provide the lightning speeds your home computer can achieve, the difference in power consumption and generated heat is more than enough motivation for most users to consider!
Although I have not yet bought an R-Pi (they sell like sliced bread at the moment and preorders can go back up to 10 weeks for delivery), when I do, I would be willing to write a tutorial on how to setup your own NAS and seedbox with R-Pi and how to control it with WebUI, Samba, FTP and SSH.
So, what is your opinion on the R-Pi? Do you have one? Have you built anything with it? Do you have an cool projects in mind?
