Hi Ed
We're doing our best to find you an alpha board right now. Hang in there :)

Eben

Oh yes, 50 exist now and the order has been placed for the first batch of $25alphas.
If Eben sends you a specimen, I trust you'll have it winging its way to Perenjori PDQ!

Hi Sage...watching with interest

I've seen several comments on the announcement thread....

http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/28

....asking whether it's going to use POE or have usb power...seems 6-20v has been mooted

IF usb power ISN'T available, here's a neat, cheap, step up/down boost/buck power supply [3.5-35v in, 4-35v out at up to 3amp with heatsink]
Should be fine for using with car/battery/powerbrick conversion to power it, no matter what!

Don't know how long this image will stay up/why it won't display in the forum?.... [thanks ebay]

For those interested

The $35 version, with RJ45, seems to have a separate 5V power input socket. This is quite a popular strategy for nominally self-powered (USB & co.) devices like KVM, data boxes, speakers, etc which operate OK for modest systems but need a few more mA when deployed flat out. Any road up, it's not an issue, as you say - just another (power) brick-in-the-wall !

Good news!

I'm trying to buy two of these sweet little things, which run on top of an Intel implementation of ARMv5.

Once I receive those (assuming I do, who knows), I'll probably revive Calf GNU/Linux, my very own distro.

I already rewrote a big part of its init scripts, which should make things easier. Then, I'll need some cross-compiler for ARM to get myself static packages of Busybox, etc'.

Also, I want to run Trinity on ARM, sounds fun Wink

RasberryPi could be part of the solution, Twisted Evil Twisted Evil developers will have a genuine interest in OpenSource Twisted Evil

Locally here in Sweden them sell Archos 101 which is a Tablet.
I trust them have ARM on them. Would that allow me to run
Debian on it? Maybe one have to "jailbreak" it first?

But I don't trust that I am patient enough to learn all the details
to do such things but them are very affordable compared to Samsung
and other brands.

By pressing I agree, I hereby acknowledge that:

Yes indeed. Them don't like that one play outside their box.
But cool that it is possible.
