I've had a Raspberry Pi minicomputer laying around collecting dust for a few months, so I decided to finally set the thing up and maybe work on some projects. I created a cheap cardstock case from the Punnet template I downloaded and proceeded to try out some different Operating Systems.
Raspbian is the recommended OS and is featured in NOOBS. It's sturdy and well-supported, but I wanted to try out something cooler. RISC OS is a legendary operating system originally developed by Acorn Computers for the ARM chipset and has recently been ported to the Raspberry Pi. It sounded like a great idea so I gave it a shot, yet to my surprise it froze indefinitely about ten seconds after boot. After re-imaging, editing config files and sifting through numerous forum posts, I finally discovered the source of the issue: my Microsoft wireless mouse...that's right, the bloody mouse. In the near future I plan on developing my own distro or very basic OS for the Raspberry Pi, so stay tuned for any new developments.
