Any Raspberry Pi owners out there?

What do you think? What you using it for?

Just fired mine up for the first time. Quite impressive for such a small board. Never played with Linux before, got some learning to do!

I ordered mine a couple months back (a bit after they added more ram to it). I can imagine I'll be getting it in January sometime. Maybe of I'm lucky it'll come around the same time as my birthday, lol.

If you want instant gratification, I'd definitely go the eBay route. I got mine from an authorized seller, hence the super long wait. But, it'll be a nice surprise.

But $40 is more than I want to spend...it's supposed to be $25 :P

Maybe I'll wait for stock to replenish. :(

That -- and money to replenish as well...

I've got two, they work good. Also most of my friends also have one or more. Everything from HTPC to webservers, we even had android running on there at a point.

There are two versions. The $25 one and the $35 one. And good luck on waiting for stock to replenish, lol. Its an item that is infinitely backordered.
