I wonder if I can get one to take my kids to school...
Hey guys, I'm going to be going to Uganda this winter break. More details here: http://www.reddit.com/r/hardware/comments/1s30p0/settings_up_4_computers_in_uganda_probably_no/
/u/garja recommended that you guys are the experts about the raspberry pi operating system. I finally decided on taking Raspberry Pi to Uganda, but I have no experience with Linux or the system at all. I am willing to learn however and it looks simple enough to set up. I will be getting SD cards to put the whole wikipedia library on them and data on Uganda itself so the children can learn the history of their country. There are a few questions I have though before I order them
Model A or Model B? I heard Model A has only one USB port so I don't understand how I will be hooking up both a mouse and keyboard to it.
What's the best way to hook them up to monitors to save the other ports for other peripherals?
Is the operating system easy enough to navigate for 4th-6th graders? I won't be there after I install the systems in Uganda.
What other issues should I be aware of?
I really appreciate any help given in this thread and am looking forward to providing education to these kids in Uganda. Thanks!submitted by epkrnftblluva
