Raspberry Pi, What OS are RS shipping with it?
Nothing came with mine, just blank for the user to select the operating system they want.
There was a pre-programmed part listed, but this was not available when I placed my order.

Consider the following.
The Texas Instruments ." LaunchPad" ( cost about $5.00 ) when populated with the MSP430G2553 is a low cost micro-controller. When Flashed with the Forth computer language it can be programmed with Windows, Mac OS and Linux operating systems when using a suitable Terminal Emulator.
The Forth computer language called , 4E4th is free and downloadable at this site.

=========================== To learn about Forth =========================
================================================ To Learn about the LaunchPad ====================
• LaunchPad User’s Guide: http://www.ti.com/lit/slau318
• MSP430x2xx User’s Guide: http://www.ti.com/lit/slau144
• C Compiler User’s Guide http://www.ti.com/lit/slau132

• A copy of the workshop workbook pdf: http://www.ti.com/launchpad-workshop
=============== What I Can Do to Help ================
Well I am writing an eBook to help launchPad users make measurements similar to those you have in mind. I do not teach Forth in the eBook -------- we use it ------ it's Action Driven-- the first item of interest is to measure the internal temperature of the chip.
The Book is not finished yet ----------- so I can send you a few chapters to see if you have a sustained interest =========== in supporting you the book will be improved.
In any case i like the sound of your project.

I just placed an order for a Raspberry Pi which I should receive in about 10 weeks. I also ordered some "extras" including - amongst other items - a 4GB smartcard with an operating system installed.
Can someone please tell me exactly what software will be bundled with this smartcard?
