Hi all,

This week's poll question is about news that a new Raspberry Pi has been released. Discuss here if you have ever played around with the tiny computers, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks,
Justin

I almost bit on a Pi 3, but for $35-$55, the 4 may be too much computer to pass up.

"What is the operating system..."

NOOBS and Raspbian are the preferred, but other images (lower half of page) work well also. I'm pretty happy with Raspbian on my 3B.

Tak for the link re’ the OS - T-R-A

I’ll have to look into this system; especially as I can play with OS on a Mac (or wyndoze if I get my old XP Acer booted up perhaps (off line of course).

Assuming the 4 is like the 3, you can boot different OS's with mere swap of the micro-SD card....

You can even install multiple OSs on the same SD card and multi-boot. Or, if you prefer, you can install everything on a USB stick or hard disk and boot from that.

At $30-$55 you can't really go wrong. I've got a 1, a 2, and a 3 so far. The 4 seems to be out-of-stock right now, but I'm sure I'll be getting one soon.
