Raspberry Pi delayed slightly, gets Fedora Remix

updated 06:05 pm EST, Mon February 20, 2012

Linux-based $35 PC shipping later this week

The $25 to $35 Raspberry Pi computer is closing in on its first shipments. The micro PC was expected to ship today, but that now has slipped a few days until Thursday or Friday. When it does ship, the Pi will come loaded with Fedora Remix, now considered the 'blessed' version of Linux for the system.

The Raspberry Pi is a small, index-card sized motherboard running a 700MHz ARM11 processor and sporting 256MB of RAM. The PC can play back video at 1080p video. The OS, GUI. and basic apps reside on a SDHC card that slips into a slot on the motherboard. Output to a monitor is through an HDMI or composite video port. A mouse and keyboard can be connected through USB.

Although intended as a homebrew computer for many purposes, it's being tailored with home theater PCs in mind and will have a take on XBMC as a front end for TV use.
