At one point in time a computer encumbered a whole room; today you can find a computer, such as Raspberry Pi, that is the size of a credit card. The Raspberry Pi is a single-board computer developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation that is capable of performing functions, similar to that of a desktop PC (such as spreadsheets, word processing, games and high definition Video). Raspberry Pi has no hardrive; instead, it relies on an SD card (not included) for booting and long-term storage. The default OS is Debian; however, you can run other ARM Linux distributions.
