Mi nuevo proyecto: Raspberry Pi
Thirty five years ago, Apple revolutionized the world of computers to create a computer accessible to the masses. In 2006, OLPC (one laptop per child, for its initials) started production of laptops at a very low price ($ 100 dollars) to give students from developing countries.
In 2006, a professor at the University of Cambridge, Eben Upton, and some colleagues decided to design a small and cheap computer to encourage young people in the field of programming, which is necessary in these days.
This gave the Raspberry Pi, a computer for $ 25 and $ 35 dollars, with cheap components but powerful, accessible to all sectors, to promote the program.
I welcome the idea and a few months ago I ordered one of them, in preproduction, and now I finally have arrived. For several days he had prepared an SD card with the operating system, Debian Linux.
This will be a fun project, I start installing XBMC via OpenELEC (a Media Center, or entertainment center for TV) to an SD card and another RaspBMC and see which works best.
