What do raspberry pi and Kickstarter have in common?

They're two things I can't wait for people on tech sites to stop bringing up on a near-daily basis.

My order keeps getting cancled. They took my money then refunded it 3 times in the past 6 months.

too bad it only has 256MB RAM (makes browsing the web and doing other basic functions quite difficult)

I ended up selling mine and will wait for a devide with at elast 1GB of memory.

the PI isnt made to be an internet browser, it in fact can... but it's a learning tool for basic programming and other linux based applications. they're a lot of fun to play with and learn with!

for it being a customized cellphone platform of sorts (S.o.C +size +price)

cool beans

Quake 3 as a stress test I like the way they think. Lets just hope we don't get a Q3DM problem while "stress testing"

When I was at RPI, we [well not really me, since I wasn't a grad student and technically not invited, but I did tag along a couple of times] played Star Craft to stress test the networking lab :)

I installed the new version with turbo boost at 1GHz, but it seems just as slow as before. Hopefully they will release the Android 4.0 port soon, because the demo videos looked very smooth. Android would make the Raspberry Pi much more functional than it currently is.

Did you change the overclock preset after updating to the new version?

You can see both how this is done here, as well as get an idea of the performance increase.

Every article I read about the Raspberry Pi gets me more excited to get mine...
I hate waiting

I have the first Raspberry Pi released. It's a cool little toy, but it's fairly slow. Glad to see they're improving on an amazing idea.
