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


EDIT: a full desktop kit runs about $120:

Raspberry Pi 4 Desktop kit is supplied with:

* Raspberry Pi 4 Model B, 4GB
* Raspberry Pi Keyboard & Mouse
* 2 × micro HDMI to Standard HDMI (A/M) 1m Cables
* Raspberry Pi 15.3W USB-C Power Supply
* Raspberry Pi 4 Case
* Official Raspberry Pi Beginner's Guide (English language)
* 16GB NOOBS with Raspbian microSD card

What is the operating system on these wee devices?

"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.
