Raspberry Pi is awesome!

I got a power supply for the Raspberry Pi and tried it out tonight.  It is awesome!  I love it much more than the Beagleboard already.

  • Doesn't need X to render to the TV (GLES2 or video hardware decoding)
  • Boots up faster than the Beagleboard
  • Defaults to TV-out mode upon bootup
  • You can run the GLES2/video apps over SSH and debug with GDB without crashing the whole thing.
  • Much, much cheaper than the Beagleboard!
All in all, I am very optimistic about the Raspberry Pi doing everything Dexter needs it to do!

I will continue to learn the OpenMAX API and hope to have something really cool to show soon. :)
