Hardware, Embedded Systems It took the world a good while, but today, my Raspberry Pi finally landed on my doormat. Since it only arrived today, I haven't had the time to put it through its paces, but I do have a few first impressions to share with you all, while I also want to explain how the Pi will allow me to complete my already seven year long quest for The Elusive Three.

I was initially interested in Pi as a tool to learn how to write an Operating System from scratch! Yes I know, a massively challenging task, but something that would be interesting none the less, especially on ARM.

However, my hopes were quickly dashed when I learnt that this thing required a proprietary binary BLOB to get the graphics and other sub-systems to load.

Back to attempting to do this with an x86 VM I guess!
