    It's not too hard. If you can install Linux you should be able to set up a Pi too

    I haven't done much with Android on the Raspberry Pi, but achieving a "PC" experience will largely depend on the desired use case and how well the Pi's hardware can handle it. I know it can run Windows 10 IoT, and this should be a solid starting point for that:

    I really wouldn't mind messing around with one. Just don't exactly know what to do with it.

    There are tons of guides and tutorials online for projects you can do. Or you can just build a portable Windows 10 computer

    Been looking at some barebones PCs. Or I could probably link 6 or 7 of these bad boys together, and make HAL or KITT...lol

    Any particular reason why you chose the Windows version rather than the Linux version?

    It's the Linux one (Raspbian). But you can install Windows 10 on it

    That makes sense! I have a PC that's dual boot Linux/Windows.

    I'll probably just keep it on Linux. I have dual boot Windows and OS X on my MBP and I'm not a fan of Windows 10 to be honest

    I don't have Windows 10 on any of my PCs. I'm still running Windows 8.1.

    I'm also thinking of getting one, since several members of my local Linux user group have them.

    Got a bundle that came with a clear case for it so I didn't have to be careful where I placed it. And I added some mini heat sinks (probably doesn't need them though)

    A lot of people use it for games too. Has tons of different uses. I've seen smart mirrors, media streaming stations, alarm system, garage door opener and countless other things. They're pretty great

    Yeah that's true.
    I just don't have the time to work with it. And I have to learn Python
    I would love to be able to program but I don't have time to learn it :s

    Python isn't very hard. But I'm also learning C++ for my computer science classes. Not fun trying to learn both at the same time lol

    That's true. At least a few hours a week if you want to make any meaningful progress
