The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card-sized single-board computer developed in the UK
by the Raspberry Pi Foundation, with the intention of promoting the teaching of
basic computer science in schools.
It mostly uses Linux kernel-based operating systems.
A Debian-based OS "Raspbian" is optimized for the Raspberry Pi hardware, and is
the current recommended system.
Yes it is a computer, that is only this big
(8.6cm x 5.4cm x 1.7cm):
8 . 6 c m
My interest is using it for
* a kiosk where people can plug in their pen drive and get tech references
(videos, e-books, PDFs)
* a stand-alone network firewall
