I just ordered my first Pi and am pretty excited about trying it out. Anyone got any suggestions or reviews of performance? I have two plans for it - first to use it as a basic programming shell, I have plenty of python experience and plan to continue playing, but also I’d like to try and use it to interface with some basic electronic equipment eg. motors and power supplies. Any favorite programs for OS or useful installations? I think at some point I’m going to try my own Gentoo or LFS build on it. Does anyone have experience of such things?
Thanks in advance!
