Need to Know – Raspberry Pi
Raspberry Pi – open source goodness
It'd be no good tinkering around with Mac OS or Windows – you wouldn't get anywhere – so the Raspberry Pi Foundation chose the open source Linux, stored on an SD card, for the job. If you need some inspiration based on what Linux is capable of, just see our list of what the OS has done for us. Other ideas include using the Raspberry Pi to control your work PC from home via a remote control service or sticking a USB drive in there to get some extra network storage.
