It has been a few weeks since I finally received my Raspberry Pi, but up until today I have been too busy to play with it.

This changed today when I finally installed a boot image on a 4GB SD card, wired up the tiny little circuit board to the TV and connected the power. I was very gratified when my TV sprung into life and I was greeted with a booting linux system!

I had a little play before I had to be getting back to work, and first impressions were very positive. I opted for the recommended debian based image, a distribution I am very familiar with. Network and USB functioned straight out of the box, and I was even able to install a few packages.

I’m looking forward to tinkering with it some more!
