Raspberry Pi Beta Boards Unveiled

Filed under
Hardware

Here’s a little something to warm your festive cockles. These are populated boards from our first run of beta devices. They’re undergoing electrical testing alongside hardware and software testing at the moment, and if all goes well, the Raspberry Pi you’ll be buying in January (or by auction later this month if they all work as they should) will be exactly like one of these.

If all the boards from this batch perform well in testing, we’ll be auctioning ten of them off; details will be available here as soon as we are confident that they’re perfect. (If they don’t get through testing, we’ll have to do another iteration, so keep your fingers crossed; I can tell you that so far, they’ve been as solid as a rock.)

Among all the university, National Chi-Nan University (NCNU) is the earliest one, which started migrating LibreOffice since 2014 and has been working on it for three years.

LibreOffice will be used to replace Microsoft Office.” The student strongly questioned, “LibreOffice is totally unknown to everyone. I don’t know what the administrative staffs of our school are thinking about. Microsoft’s software is a very basic skill for enterprises to recruit people. This decision will make students lost their core competitiveness.” Read more
