First bite of the Pi

Started playing around with the raspi properly today. Already booted up XBMC when I first got it, just to make sure everything worked. Very cool but a bit unoriginal and boring.

First thing I did was whack a decent distro on there. Sorry Debian lovers - I'm a fedora man. Tried the official raspi 'fedora remix' but it was a bit old - based on F14 so nowhere near bleeding edge. Found a Fedora 17 based raspi build here. Much better.

First thing to do was Quake III - what else?! Not much to say really, everyone's seen the youtube clips. It runs OK. Crazy to think my desktop struggled with this when it first came out.

I have a plan (finally) for my raspi.... more soon :)
