The Pie has FreeBSD and other Linux distro support and lots of i/O to hook up other peripherals.
And I was running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on a Beagle Bone Black in April of '04 (although its userland was running on a somewhat back-versioned kernel for a couple months until the guy doing the kernel ports got the proper one fully ported).
The Black is not the first Beagle Bone version, either, and it was running Debian Linux from the first time I encountered it. It has lots of I/O hookup opportunities - including onboard USB, Ethernet, video, and lots of GPIOs that can be configured to provide several serial ports and a number of buses, in addition to lots of wiggle wires. And you can stack peripheral boards on it, as well.
Plug in a wall wart, USB hub, keyboard, mouse, monitor, (and, if 4 or 8 Gigabytes of file systems feels too cramped, a USB drive or mount a filesystem from a fileserver). Bingo: a full-blown desktop system with about the power of a cellphone and smaller than a pack of cigarettes (excluding all the stuff you plugged into it, of course).
Which is not to say it's the best choice. it's just one I happen to be familiar with. There are a number of single-board machines out there. Cellphone processor technology is too powerful, cheap, and available to NOT be plowshared.
As you all know, first prize is a Cadillac El Dorado. Anybody want to see second prize? Second prize is a set of steak knives. Third prize is you're in prison.
And by the way, all of you now work for the government, comrades.
Squirrels are just a cost, not a threat. They don't coordinate to attack all at once
They pose a mortal goddamn threat to the peaches on the tree in my backyard.

Get the fuck out back to you stupid india, you fucking america-hating chimp
I'll bet that sounded better in Russian.
Put a half dozen people in an old submarine, and drop it on the bottom of a lake without any fuel.
This is a rather extreme way of dealing with the new Trump cabinet, but since we're brainstorming I'll put it on the list.
The USA has a very top heavy infrastructure and not enough grunts in the fields. everything is that way. businesses government etc.
Certainly higher education is like that.
1) A fool and his money are soon parted
2) There's a sucker born every minute.
2) Force employers to pay a 10% tax on that salary
Isn't this the part where all the "free market" believers tell us that "companies never pay taxes, they just pass them on to their customers"?
So far, we've got Trump proposing a 35% tax on US companies that build products overseas and Slashdot fools telling us that raising taxes on companies will lead to greater employment.
Did something change with the Trump inauguration that's suddenly made believers in "economic liberty and small government" love taxes?
those are your choices with pretty much every single product in the world.
No. There are more smartphones than cars in the world, but I can buy a Ford with an automatic transmission, a manual transmission, a big trunk, a small trunk, hatchback, truck bed or 20" rims that spin backward when I drive.
So where is my 2017 Samsung or Apple with a replaceable battery?
I'd like to grab her by the pussy
You can't afford that pussy.
But you can rent one just like it at certain Moscow hotels.
Good includes the fact that he's not dependent on campaign contributors like almost all major politicians are.
And that's why today Sheldon Adelson was the first billionaire donor ever to attend an inaugural luncheon.
Trump did not "self-fund" his campaign. That's a rural myth.
