Raspberry Pi is a mini-computer that was specifically created to make tech learning easier. It has a lot of components for computer-based projects, like USB ports, an ethernet port, an SD card slot, Wi-Fi antenna ports, and more. The Raspberry Pi is perhaps the most notable and popular single-board computer ever produced. Developed by the Raspberry Pi foundation in the UK, the tiny computer was developed with the goal of promoting and teaching basic computer science in schools.
The list of operating systems that have been ported to Raspberry Pi includes: Linux, Android, Debian, Firefox OS, WebOS, Unix, Windows CE, ChibiOS/RT, Haiku, AROS, Puppy Linux, Gentoo Linus, openSUSE, and RISC OS to name a few. The list does go on and on. And on.
It does not come with peripherals, like cables, a keyboard, a mouse, or a monitor. It is great for learning program languages, like Python, Scratch, and Wolfram. Most Raspberry Pi enthusiasts like making single-process builds to show off their do-it-yourself talents.
