after my win 7 desktop lost its backup harddrive
i only work on RPI.
( like for this forum work and using Processing IDE …)
what is very special is the direct GPIO
now there will be sketch what not run in normal graphic mode
so you might need to setup KMS
but that has some downsides for the full desktop settings.
you have 1GB RAM
for cpu, gpu, ramdisk
and as soon any program starts to talk ( or gets paged )
with the system drive:
that is a uSD card // slow // easy gets wear out by write cycles //
so if you are one of these guys how always has 20 tabs open in the browser
you will learn better.
tip’s about the cards:
in all that years i never found a reason to have a card bigger as 32GB
