We got a Raspberry Pi in the office today, and hooked it up to a keyboard and monitor.

In case you haven’t heard of it, Raspberry Pi runs Linux on an ARM processor and has a target price of $25/£15 for a pre-configured system.

Works a treat!

Just want to get Chrome on it now :^).

    Did you manage to get Chrome running? How well does it run?

    How well does it run the OS? I’m tempted to get one when they become available publicly

    Cannot get HTML5 though… (Youtube refuses to play any videos)
