No getting around it – Raspberry Pi projects are popular.
According to the Raspberry Pi Foundation, more than 5 million Raspberry Pis were sold by February 2015, making it the best-selling British computer. By November 2016 they had sold 11 million units, and 12.5 million by March 2017, making it the third best-selling “general purpose computer”. In July 2017, sales reached nearly 15 million, climbing to 19 million in March 2018. By December 2019, a total of 30 million devices had been sold.
They are also extremely flexible…
The Raspberry Pi Foundation provides Raspberry Pi OS (formerly called Raspbian), a Debian-based Linux distribution for download, as well as third-party Ubuntu, Windows 10 IoT Core, RISC OS, LibreELEC (specialised media centre distribution) and specialised distributions for the Kodi media centre and classroom management.
That’s the short-list, i.e. I counted over 30 more OSes!? That’s flexible! 😉
I don’t know anything about them, and they are just too small for me to tinker wid. Find the projects ‘n ‘Stuff‘ interesting tho.
Will add this post to the TidBits ‘n Gadgets page…have also added a new Raspberry Pi category.
LINUX IS LIKE A BOX OF CHOCOLATES – you never know what you’re gonna get!
