I can make it 6th Nov but not for a few days.


from the wiki:

Availability

Estimated availability (as of 25th October 2011) is December 2011. Initially, there will be shipping from the UK and possibly the US, but will probably expand with local distributors by the second quarter of 2012.

That is my understanding as the expected/earliest possibility.
You can follow them on twitter (Puppy 5.3 has a ready made cloud feature for twitter - see Slickpet)
search for Raspberry_Pi on twitter
Cool

Does anyone know if Ångström intend to build for Pi (a bootstrapping option)?
http://narcissus.angstrom-distribution.org/

What is the current status of KISS AmigoLinux from Amigo?
This has some plans for ARM I believe?

Congratulations!

Of course the Puppy Linux community’s tail is wagging at your references to Eben as “bushy tailed” Smile

Hope that you will reserve one board for Barry Kauler, our chief dev (URL: http://bkhome.org/bkauler/ ) - I will pay for it.

Addition: For developers who want to have fun with the cutting-edge Puppy Linux @ 113 MB, see here.

We do love kids, puppies and fruits. Very Happy

You guys are right at the top of the list for the pre-production run – we’d love to see Puppy running on Raspberry Pi. (And you are also in the class of people who don’t have to pay – cue giant storm of outrage from other commenters.)

I was a little skeptical before, but now that I know Liz is a fan of They Might Be Giants...

there has to be a howto for turning a usb cable and an rca dongle into a makeshift usb monitor using any tv with an rca input

i suggest a puppy with a raspberry pi logo as the nose!


I tried that. Also tried it on the eye - it was good for Halloween, but too scary for nooby. At least one real artist (as opposed to the claw fisted moi) is working on a logo/wallpaper . . . Smile

Have you set up server software yet?
You could use Wikka 1.3.2 and then the existing wiki page would be easy to mirror and eventually lead to independence . . .
http://wikkawiki.org/HomePage

My plan is a PARM matchbox device, with rechargeable batteries.
. . . you might want to power a robot . . . or develop an in car device . . .
Eventually we will be able run a server from an ARM smartphone . . .

On x86 we have to support a variety of hardware (that will continue - I want a Puppy 64bit and Wary etc)

Pi means support for one processor, one multimedia device
That is a start

What is being done here is different.
With the right price and feature set, we will commit to a device.
The tablet and mobile market is volatile, at the moment there would be no consensus of developers and testers/users.

With Pi we have developers and users practically rabid with anticipation . . . Shocked
Even the more cautious are coming around . . .

We are going right back to the hardware.
Fun for the whole kennel

Puppy Linux
We do

is this directed towards me? if so i haven't (honestly thought i was getting ignored on that.. figured you guys must of already had some sort of server room), but i can... i have the option to easily install (clicking with fantastico) tikiWiki CMS/Groupware & PhpWiki. but if you prefer wikka i can as well just might take me a bit to either figure it out or let the host do it for me (he's a nice dude and will probably do it for me).

Sounds pretty cool - could have it hooked up to a HDTV with a nice looking Conky Lua with weather, time, RSS and use it as a internet radio player or big picture frame etc.
Wonder if you could use one of these with it?

i was looking for one of these for my pi as well actually... well the older model i think... and they say they're linux compatible (and list older releases) so.. i don't see any reason it wouldn't work (unless the pi kernel will need patch with whatever modules)

What I know is that the R-Pi is TV-ready (has HDMI, too).

Or perhaps I did not understand the pun?
