Raspberry Pi, The Smallest, and Cheapest Linux Desktop For Just $25

     Hi there, it’s very interesting when we are continuously listening to Computers since those always surprise us by compressing themselves in size, providing more features, and although making our life easier. Even though the features are getting multiplied every second, the change in size is very much amazing. We know the very first computer was sized around of a huge room; gradually It decreased very much so that we could comfortably move on with it. What to say, the computing features are extended upto today’s smartphones even though we couldn’t get an actual computing experience that of an Actual PC.

But have anyone thought of having pc that fits in your Pocket, what would it be like? lot better than having a generator sized thing on your desk and you have to sit so next to it for it’s comfortable, or using heater on the laps which is so called laptop so just forgot about it all if you got a pc that fits in your pocket and cost s less than 25 bucks, not kidding, raspberry pi is here an ARM GNU/Linux box for $25, of course with tones of free Software
