OSNews, Generic OSes "Naren has been working on a port of Android 4.0 to Raspberry Pi, and as you can see from the screenshots and video below, he's been making great progress. Hardware-accelerated graphics and video have been up and running smoothly for some time; AudioFlinger support is the only major missing piece at the moment." Not sure how useful it is, but still pretty cool.

Initial Raspberry Pi support was recently committed to NetBSD source tree too ;) . It is becoming quite interesting machine with lots of open source OSes support. However, is it really interesting to anybody except geeks and will it be the start for other similar solutions? I currently doubt it.


The idea behind the Pi, is that people have a very cheap way to learn how to code, it's primary aim was for schools so kids had something to learn on/with. Geeks as you say, have already made a big headway and it will leave a lasting mark for other people wanting to learn how to code.

Of course, it doesn't always have to be linux that it runs and I'm sure there are some nice projects out there that don't run linux.
