Raspberry pi a mini computer...

filesystem

 USB, Audio out, LAN

3. Emulators for tons of old platforms (C64, Atari, NES, 

etc.) 


4. Games – OpenTTD, OpenArena, more…

6. Several OS options – Raspbian (Debian optimized 

for Rpi), Debian (non-optimized), Arch Linux, RISC-

OS, NetBSD – NO UBUNTU (but not a big deal)
