The more I know the more I know there is llitle I know.
So just like you I'm aware there is little I'm aware about  :smiley-eek:
Therefore I'm always on the lookout for people who are aware of things in my space of interest. If they are "aware" of something it may save me lots of time.
And given the huge amount of unawareness saving time is a hard job. Luckily we know the answer is to all questions is 42

I think I'll stick with Arduino, the RPi looks nice in many ways but it has too much of what I don't need and not enough of what I do.


Very well put.  If only the RPi had some ADCs and more GPIO, I think it would dethrone Arduino as the microcontroller king.  RPi has nailed two very important aspects that made Arduino great:  1) Price and 2) Grass roots exposure at schools & colleges.  I'd say the exposure has been viral & global & immediate.

With ADCs and more GPIO and better documentation, RPi can do to Arduino what Arduino did to Parallax basic stamps.  

One clear advantage RPi has over Arduino is the programming language.  If I could choose any language I'd choose Matlab script or Octave because of the vector programming power over matrices.  That's a pipe dream of course.  My second choice would be Python, RPi's default language.

I will be watching RPi closely.  In the meantime, I plan on buying the 32bit "Due" when it comes out in October (my prediction).  It'd be nice if someone found a way to link the RPi to the Due.

Ethernet shield and network cable? (in most cases you can connect 2 network cards by just plugging a network cable in the network cards without using a router)
You'll have to use fixed IP addresses in this case.

Pinout of the Raspberry PI GPIO header -> http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/384
So it has I2C, serial and SPI. I'm waiting to buy a Raspberry till there is enough online documentation on how to use these pins. I would like to connect an Arduino to the Raspberry for a robot. For a programming noob like me the raspberry is to difficult to program but if there is enough online info/tutorials then maybe it's worth buying. I bought a book to learn Python some time ago, might be useful :)
