Site Update Incoming:

We will be looking at changing our sites in the near future, to ensure the MagPi is accessible directly through a Raspberry Pi computer.

Keep your eyes peeled!

We will begin work on this as soon as one or more of the team get a real Raspberry Pi to test with.

The primary site for the MagPi will be:

The MagPi team.

  1. First, congratulations on the magazine, I’m slowly working through the content.

    Second, please get rid of the horrible, horrible flash stuff.

  2. Why do I have to enable a bunch of stuff in NoScript (including googleapis) just to be able to see the “Go To Our Non-Flash Site” link? Having a Flash-only initial page is poor design practice. Fail.

  3. As a Linux user, I expect Raspberry Pi to be familiar to me, since it will mostly use linux on board, and also I see you promote python as programming language, which also has most of it’s community on linux machines.

    But when I was reading the journal, I felt like I’m from different planet. Especially article about RacyPy.

    1. “RacyPy, is a pre-packaged cd image which when “booted” (run from power up) will load a graphical desktop similar to a MS Windows or Apple Mac computer.”. Really?

    2. To burn ISO image, you promote some ImgBurn software.

    I mean, maybe I’m wrong, but I expect that common userbase for raspberry pi are already linux users (or familiar with it). It’s 2012 around here. Most programmers either use linux, or know how to run it inside virtual machine and already played with it.

    • If one of the main end users is going to be schools, then no the common user base is not necessarily going to be linux users – or even familiar with it. It might be 2012, and those of us who use Linux ourselves will see the benefits, but for those people who are not (and that is still the majority of users in and out of school) links link ImgBurn are going to be essential. And lets face it, as popular as the Raspberry Pi has been with the developer community, that’s not its main publicly stated target market

  4. Why is the primary download site pointing to Would this do better as a Google Docs file?

  5. Excellent post. I was checking constantly this blog and I am impressed! Very useful information specially the last part 🙂 I care for such information a lot. I was looking for this certain info for a long time. Thank you and best of luck.
