BSD Pi

Pi was\is for education\geekiness first! (that alone in my makes it better and more open) How much profit from it @ $35? Can't be much...unless they were simply trying to get fat?

Windows 95 on up to 7(VMware ) I see can be ported (to the one I consider more open).

My experience whit
Broadcom sucked but that was with netduino\winblows.

Thanks to you and them.
I tend to stick with a distro for years on end these days (I don't fs up now that me and L\*\inux have been around the block a few times) so I miss going through and seeing lots of them the Pi has brought that fun back; + desktop-distribution-of-the-year-4175441843/, VirtualBox and live runs.

That is obviously not what I was talking about. I think it is called the Pengpad or something.

Please do not misquote people. When you use the quote function, that means the person you are quoting actually said that. The place under the quote is the place for comments. I do not want it to seem like I use bad grammar.

What I meant was the PengPod. While the tablets at Make Play Live would still be in the $100s, I read one of the PengPods is exactly $100. They both list the specifications, and the Vivaldi tablets (at the former site) say they are open; the PengPods do not say, but I am not sure either really say if they have open hardware designs, or if that is what this category is about, or just stuff that runs Free Software but may not be completely open design hardware itself.

And you'll like the RPi even more when you use it for voice control of your home!
