I am the very proud owner of one of the pre-ordered Raspberry Pi’s. I stayed up till 2am (for the 8am UK time release) but was only able to order one the next day as the 10000 people who tried (and mostly failed) to order one at the launch. The featured picture one I took once I had taken it out of the shipping envelope (kind of like an un-boxing that I didn’t bother to do)
There is something liberating about using an operation system that not only is free, but completely open source. You have the option to take this operation system and modify it in any way you want, for free, as long as you too publish the source code to any changes you made to the Linux kernel. This is one of the most powerful assets for Linux, and is the driving force behind adoption.
When it comes to computers now-a-days the reality is not many people are choosing to buy a desktop. And why wouldn’t you? You can get an almost limitless variety of laptops which cater to all needs, thus rendering a desktop obsolete for almost all but the most demanding of users.
So with the majority of users using laptops, this begs the question: what are they running on these laptops?
The reality is this, those who choose to buy a Mac almost always run Mac OS (obviously) with the occasionally user choosing to also run windows along side it.
