Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
"The Raspberry Pi has now been split into two versions: One priced at $25 and one at $35. The 25$, Quake 3 Arena running device is packed with the protypes same 700MHZ ARM 11 processor, runs Linux and has the same USB and HDMI ports. The latest version has128MB of RAM, uses an SD card and has an audio and RCA video jack. The $35 model gets you the same specs, plus 256MB of RAM and an Ethernet port." Amazing little Soc board. It's small enough to fit inside a keyboard or monitor. Review is here."

Lots of people gave Vista a bad rep because -- get this -- they didn't know how to use their damned computers!
I'm sure that must be it. I've only personally owned computers since 1982, taught myself assembler to write faster games on a C=64, hacked hardware on an Amiga, switched to Linux in '98 or so, got a Slashdot login some time the same week, picked up FreeBSD a few months later, snagged a degree in CompSci, built the home server sitting next to me from Newegg parts, and turned an HP Mini into a Hackintosh last month. That must be why my wife's dual-core laptop with 2GB of RAM and Vista ran like crap from the day we bought it, even after I stripped out the OEM junk and have almost nothing running at startup: because I'm a technophobic newbie who doesn't know how to use my damned computers.
Yeah, Ditto to that. Vista's UI is a mess IMHO. I hate it. Windows 7 is a vast improvement, and if the past is any indicator, this will be Vista's death lurch. People will be buying new PC's with 7 and Vista will slowly wither on the vine, much as ME did. Even old-timer's are ready to move forward with it.
Each tile is a complete full-featured processor, including integrated L1 & L2 cache and a non-blocking switch that connects the tile into the mesh. This means that each tile can independently run a full operating system, or multiple tiles taken together can run a multi-processing operating system like SMP Linux."
