    Are we going to have to start calling you "Aiden2"?

    Awesome, I'm sure you remember my story...
    Pre-Ordered one and several months went by and the order got mixed up. Never got it and was never charged for it.
    So I still don't have one.
    I love the idea and I'm sure the Ubuntu ARM distro has come a long way. So hopefully there are some gaming capabilities for light gaming by now

    I have heard that DosBox run on ARM and there are some emulators for PC games....

    Wine developers are also interested in a Wine port to Android. Meaning running PC games on ARM processors.
    If that becomes successful then the list will be even bigger.

    It's not suited to to running games under Wine. Would be far too slow.

    Probably, but maybe there is a chance... programmers seem to figure out anything once they put their minds to it.
    I noticed some comments on Open Arena (Rasberri Pi Store) that it would barely run.
    I know its not made to be a gaming machine, but even Dos games are enough to get few hundred games running.

    Project One is Bitcoin mining.

    I now have one Antminer U1 ASIC plugged in and working on my Windows box. It's averaging 1.97 Gh/s at stock speed.

    I have another Antminer U1 on the way, plus a USB hub, so I can get both of these mining with the Raspberry Pi.

    It's a Uno32 - Arduino-ish, but 32bit MIPS core, rather than an 8bit processor. In this particular case, I'm fuzzing EDID data.

    I now have this Raspberry Pi bitcoin mining using bfgminer: http://bfgminer.org/

    The ASIC is now hashing at the same rate as it was on my Windows box. But can be left switched on 24/7 because it is silent, and doesn't use much power.

    I have had my Pi for a good little while. Neat little gadget. Slow as heck but just dandy for web surfing. It may do a lot more but my skills are limited.
    I am kind of slobbering over an Odroid.

    That Odroid looks very good, quite a bit more powerful.

    The Pi is ideal for stuff which doesn't need so much processing power.

    Next thing I will be trying is setting-up some kind of Wikipedia bot.
