    As I’ve researched …
    As I’ve researched Arduino, Beagleboard, Raspberry Pi, and others for a
    project, I have watched a lot of videos. I’m an experienced software
    developer and electronics engineer but these videos would be helpful with
    or without my background. These videos are, by far, the best and most
    professional technical videos I have watched.

    The videos are very professional. The speaking rate is just right as is
    focusing on the topic rather than rambling or conversation. This maximizes
    the amount of learning I get for my investment in youtube time. Very well
    done! Thank you.?

    What linux systems …
    What linux systems can it run? How powerful it actually is? I mean in real
    life, I’d like to use it only for email, office, occasional 1080p video and
    music.In the video he says it can be used as a office machine, but he does
    not show any ”work”. What do you think? ALSO: Can the micro USB be used
    to connect the R-pi to a PC? Like when you’ve got android device? Thanks?
