Packaging A Robot To A Jar from the Command Line?
But for the cost of 20, I got a quad-core Core i7 with 16 gigs of RAM. :-) So I can run 5-6 threads, each 20x faster than the Pi.
If you're curious, there was some talk on Raspberry Pi about some of the issues people hit, though who knows how much has changed in a year+.
But where would the fun be in having a single desktop when you can legitimately tell people you have a server farm in your front room? He he he! ;)
