Raspberry Pi Up and Running
A really, really quick way to get started on your new Pi in 5 minutes. If you have just bought a new Raspberry Pi, and you are so excited you canceled plans with your friends just to go home and hook it up. Here is my write up on a very quick cut-to-the-chase path to get started on your Pi without the technical details to kill your appetite. My new Raspberry Pi 2 model B, a $35 Quadcore computer the size of a credit card is six times faster than the previous v1. It has sold more than 4M units and I had to wait for a month on back order. Unlike an Arduino, which is a microcontroller, a Raspberry Pi is a full-fledge Linux computer with GPIOs (General I/O Pins) to easier connect to the physical world unlike a normal computer. If connected to a keyboard, mouse and a monitor it can work like a desktop PC, albeit a little lame to treat it just that.
