Free Raspberry Pi

You’ve not read it wrong, I really am giving away a Raspberry Pi computer! Now that the Model B has been upgraded to 512mb RAM and mine’s set to arrive this week, I have no use for the one that has been powering this site, so I’m giving it away!

How do I enter to be in for a chance to win a Raspberry Pi?

All you need to do is leave a comment on this post telling me why you should win it, and what you would do for your own Raspberry Pi project. I’m not looking for anything creative here, you could just be replacing that ugly old beige Windows-based PC you’ve been using for years with it, or working on your own Raspberry Pi Web server.

What it’s been doing since I received it

This website is built on the popular CMS, WordPress. I knew when the Raspberry Pi launched that once Linux was installed, there was no reason why it couldn’t run Apache, PHP and MySQL. I took this one step further – this site is hosted on a Raspberry Pi web server, and WordPress works great on it!

The Raspberry PI I’m giving away is a 256mb Model B. It’s served well and never missed a trick, but the time has come to retire it from hosting the site, and for it to go to a new home. Tell me below why you should win and what you’d do with it.

What will I win?

  • Raspberry Pi Model B computer (256mb RAM model)
  • 4gb USB Flash Drive (With Raspbian pre-installed)
  • 2gb SD Card (boot instruction to boot from the USB Flash Drive)

The winner will be announced in the first week of December. Please subscribe to my newsletter from the home page to be kept informed of my projects and news. Please share the giveaway on twitter if you can. Good luck!
