Neglected Raspberry Pi

"A bunch of nerds could order one, then wait six months for it to arrive. They could install a version of Linux on it, play around with it for about 20 minutes, and then talk about how maybe they'll use it for XMBC. Then they could just let it gather dust on some shelf until it gets thrown away in a few years."

My sentiment exactly. Especially regarding Raspberry Pi or similar devices. Due to the low spec, slow updates from distro, and lack of an optimized GPU support, you can't do much with the tiny devices unless you want to learn more about electronic. Must figure out a way to do with the abandon Pi at home, maybe I can turn it into a wireless print server instead.
