    So I have never crossed into the Raspberry Pi realm. But I'm thinking of it. I have been reading and wanted to send a quick sanity check thread.

    If I understand correctly I can purchase a kit like the one below for a Raspberry Pi and install Linux on it and run Openbuilds Control with a monitor, keyboard and mouse?

    Thanks for you time, Folks!

    I'm working on the workaround for compiling openbuilds control on the pi. I'll post an update to this thread when I have more.

    I was wondering if you were happy with this purchase or if you would have done something different after using it for a while?

    I'm happy. As long as you dont expect it to be as fast as a desktop/laptop, then you'll be happy. I only use it to run OB control.

    Keep in mind, I bought this instead of the one Peter runs because I have multiple 10" touchscreens laying around. For the price, you might want to consider what Peter uses: PiPO X10 TV Box 10.8 Inch Mini PC Windows 10 & Android 5.1 US Plug
