Almost every computer needs some sort of case, so last year i alos ordered a Pi Box from Adafruit. Just like the Raspberry Pi its been sitting in a box waiting to be opened. Thanks to the smart design of this thing it was a breeze to put together. I think i spent more time taking off the protective coverings than anything else. I really like this case.
When the Raspberry Pi came out last year, i bought one. I had no a idea what i was going to do with it but i like tiny computers and i like linux so surely i needed one.
