    Raspberry Pi is a Low-Power, Credit-Card Sized Computer

    This is a different approach to get a computer to the masses even in the middle of the poor regions of the earth. The article: http://www.ecogeek.org/component/content/article/3715

    I wonder if it would be possible to stack up a bunch of these and set them up as a cluster... how would it perform...

    NeoGen - Maybe your company you work for could use them to track the Heifers they ship to Africa, and find out where the cows have managed to move around too! Its just a thought or sheep, or goats etc. I am sure at that size a GPS transmitter can not add too much more to the equation.

    They are still selling out of these in many places. I have been looking at one as people have done many neat projects with them. There was a setup with 64 of these installed into a case made of legos. I have not seen any performance numbers on it though. One of the projects I found interesting was setting it up to do energy/PV system monitoring. They even mention the potential of a media player. Then there is the idea of using a low power PC in the kitchen for pulling up recipes online and shopping lists that are accessible by cell phone.

    Hard to believe? He could even do a lot better after reading this I guess...

    And, by the way, welcome Clyde!
    Are you in possession of a Raspberry Pi (or another ARM device) perhaps?

    Welcome to the Team ClydeAustin, yes we like things odd that make some one respond like you did! Welcome aboard.

    BOINC on a RaspBerry Pi (or other ARM-based hardware)


    The main differences between B and B+ pointed out. I've left out the original Model A as it has only 256Mb of memory and no ethernet port, but included the all-new Model A+.
    Nothing is preventing you from sticking a WiFi USB stick into the USB port anyway...better still: first plug in a (powered) USB hub

    Are you confined to Raspberry PI's when BOINC-ing on ARM? Nope! You can BOINC on BeagleBone Black, Banana Pi (?), Cubie Board, HummingBoard, Odroid, Udoo, you can add yours as well!
    If and when you are interested in BOINC-ing by means of your smart phone, please consult NativeBOINC!
