Been meaning to do some Googling/research, but has anyone here tried out the Raspberry Pi yet? I'm really wanting to migrate my current HTPC setup to something that's not a huge glowing desktop tower sitting next to my TV. Not sure if it would handle my 1080p video and gaming emulation needs though.
I have a raspberry pi and dont really recommend it if youre trying to use it for XBMC. Theres just not enough memory for the ui to run smoothly (512 mb). Now if youre just gonna run ubuntu or linux and hook a hard drive with movies on it, from what I hear that works well. Im currently looking in to streaming content from my pc on the pi in another room via ethernet bc I was unsatisfied with using the XBMC os on it. The 100 mb/s ethernet port also can keep you from streaming large files to well, no gigabit support. As for emulation, I wouldnt expect much more than nes or snes, maybe ps1.
