Found a parcel in the mail yesterday when I got home from work.
The first text I read was T-shirt, and I wondered what this was. I had not ordered any T-shirt.
But then I read the complete sentence, 'dev-kit and T-shirt'.
At last, my Raspberry Pi had arrived!

It was some time ago since I signed up as interested to get one, and I haven't thought much about it since.
But now I need to get the peripherals needed, keyboard, mouse, SD card.
With that all taken care of today after work, I downloaded the Debian squeeze distro and put it on the card.
Hooking up the board to the TV, it was just to add power and it booted up nicely.

Entering login and password without any problem, and I was all set. Starting gui with startx, and I got this nice desktop!

That's it. All set to go...
