Adafruit Releases Educational Linux Distro For Raspberry Pi 38

ptorrone writes "Open-source hardware company Adafruit has released a Linux Raspberry Pi distro for hardware hacking and teaching electronics. This distro comes with SPI, I2C, & OneWire WiFi. It also has some things to make overall hacking easier, such as sshd on startup (with key generation on first boot) and Bonjour (so you can simply ssh raspberrypi.local from any computer on the local network). The distro is called Occidentalis v0.1. Rubus occidentalis (the black raspberry) is derived from Raspbian Wheezy, and is available for download here."

    Adafruit are great. They produced an enhanced clone of the legendary Roland TB-303 bass synth and sequencer, then open sourced the circuit diagrams. Unlike the dozens of prevous 303 clones, they actually cloned the sequencer which was as essential to the appeal of the machine as the synth section.

Real Users find the one combination of bizarre input values that shuts down the system for days.
