Hurray, a new major milestone has been reached.

Today my new Raspberry Pi arrived.  It arrived in a beautiful box :

We’ve got the casing, the Pi, the power cable (powered using usb) and Raspbian, the linux operating system pre-installed on an SD Card.  How cool is that.

It’s really easy to assemble into the casing.  Here it is :

Put the card into the casing :

Hook it up to the screen using a HDMI cable, plug in the network cable, stick a mouse in there and we’re ready to go.  It boots by plugging in the power.

This version of Raspbian automatically boots into the graphical user interface.
