Learn How To Program The Raspberry Pi
By Zach Walton
The Raspberry Pi is a tiny $25 computer intended for children that sold out to adults wanting to play with it. It really is quite the amazing work of art as far as computers are concerned. It runs on Linux and has a minimalistic design consisting of an HDMI out, USB port, SD card port and an ethernet port.

Eben Upton, founder of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, will be hosting a webinar on April 4 for those who want to learn how to program for the computer. The webinar will be hosted in collaboration with Element 14 on April 2 at 2 p.m. GMT. If you want to attend, you will have to sign up. For those who can't make it, the video will be uploaded later.

Upton will be walking new and veteran users alike on how to download and install the operating system on an SD card, run the boot up script and use the script editor to create applications using Python. It should be an interesting talk for those who want to learn how to use one of the world's smallest (and cheapest) computers.

CrunchBang Linux Review
I love CrunchBang Linux. In my opinion, it's one of the best distributions of Linux for older computers (heck, any computer) that is actively developed. I pieced together a Gateway M250 laptop a year or so ago (3 bad ones parted out into 1 good one) and loaded it up with max RAM (2GB). It's now a handy little 14 inch laptop with a 1.73Ghz single core Centrino processor. Not bad…but when playing videos or streaming them, it can really struggle. So keeping the operating system lightweight on it is a definite must. Enter, CrunchBang. It's small and fast.
