Just ordered one  :)
Standing in the shadows, hiding from the light
Reach out in the darkness, and hold on for your life
All the fear of the future, all the emptiness inside
When the moment of truth arrives, hey, you can run but you can't hide

You will be lucky to see it in 6 months time.
We have several on order at work. Neat bit of kit though.

It is on its way from Amazon for delivery tomorrow Patrick.  At least that is what they told me.

It arrived just before 10 this morning.  OSMC (media server) up and running within 15 minutes.  Awesome.  Now setting up RetroPie / Emulation station on a different micro sd card.
And I've put it in its gorgeous Rainbow Pibow case.

I must be getting confused in my old age.
Hope you have lots of fun with it.

Had the first incarnation of the Pi, used it as a web server (installed Ubuntu server edition on it). Fun, but the novelty wore off. I do like them though.

I bought a Pi 2, was using it as a web server but replaced it with a cheap instance in the Amazon Cloud.

Not sure what to do with it really, it's been lying unused for over a year. Perhaps I'll strap it to an external hard drive to use as a sort of DIY iSCSI NAS.
