Developer Geert Bevin (Moog Music, Roger Linn Design, MPE) shared this sneak preview of a new Linux distribution that he’s working on for the Raspberry Pi 3.
The Raspberry Pi 3 is a minimal computer, designed to offer quad-core processing power for about $40. Its combination of price and power makes it an interesting platform for embedded audio/MIDI projects.
Bevin says that his first steps have been to get the smallest possible Linux distribution working, with full LCD, mouse, keyboard, audio and MIDI support, and get it running a full-blown JUCE GUI application.
