- 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. :)
