I got a Microsoft Surface RT a little over 2 weeks ago. I really like the hardware. Runs fast, display is good, and the build is solid feeling.
The touch cover keyboard is not that great and would advise to stay away from it at all cost. I will most like will get the type cover keyboard to replace it very soon. Bluetooth mice and head sets seem to work great.
Now about the “modern” UI. It was difficult to get used to it at first but, now I am starting to become a real pro at it, and like how it works. I can understand how the change can be frustrating for a lot of people. For me it really does make sense in how it works.
The apps for the Surface RT are nice but not all of the mainstream ones are available in the store yet, but they have been coming. Some of the apps that are in the store are nice and like them better from the IOS ones.
The Reasberry Pi Just got a unoffical image of FreeBSD. FreeBSD is a free Unix-like operating system descended from AT&T UNIX via BSD UNIX. This is not an official release; this image has been built by the FreeBSD community. the Raspberry Pi foundation does expect an official release from FreeBSD at some point. Go check it out!
Well I got a Raspberry Pi about a week go. I must say it’s been fun tinkering with it. Mostly been getting quake 3 running on it an playing with other loads, right now I am testing a xbmc load on it, and its working very well.

I has some high hopes on this device, but it was flawed in a lot of ways. What it really actually did seemed so lacking. To put the final nail in the coffin, the first generation had major failure rates, they just would die. For the few weeks that mine was working, I was left wanting more that it could not give. eventually mine even died. I did not bother to get it replaced, I just was not going to use it.
