Post subject:  [CONSIDERING] UberStudent on a Raspberry Pi?

A question for the folks that like to push the envelope - can UbSt be installed on an SSD card to make a Raspberry Pi boot into this awesome system? What I'm reading says raspbian wheezy (a debian relative) is the preferred OS... Any experiences/concerns welcomed.

The Raspberry Pi has an ARMv6-architecture CPU. UberStudent is based on Ubuntu, which dropped support for ARMv6 CPUs back in 2009.

I love the potential of the Rasperry Pi, and could potentially make an UberStudent edition based upon Raspbian. It's something I'll think about....

sounds interesting , Uberstudent + Raspberry will be a great leap forward .

Helle Stephen,

First of all, I love uberstudent, and would love it even more if if it could run on my pi :)
Is it something you're still considering?

Regards
Idriz

Yes, still a good possibility. Let me get the 6.0 regular version out and then I'll look into it more!

I'd love recomendations for buying a Pi kit.

Offcourse,
First of all, I do need to tell you that I am a newbie in the unix world. Mostly I work in the MS world and PowerShell, since my workplace only allows Windows based software 
Regarding the Pi, it really depends on your needs. I use my Pi’s for home-media-center, and to surveil my dog when I’m not at home. There are many distro’s for both. I like the ‘motionpi’ distro for the surveillance, and OSMC (OpenSourceMediaCenter) for obviously the media center. I like the Pi’s because there are no moving parts and therefor no noise (hate noise ;-), minimal power consumption. Word of advice for the webcams. There are a lot of them out there, and many are just bad quality. I went through 3 different before I figured out I shouldn’t save money on them, especially if you want to use them in semi-dark conditions.
In my opinion you should only buy the Pi3 for starters. It’s the fastest with 1.2 Mhz CPU and you probably have several microUSB cables, USB adapters, HDMi cables and MicroSD cards (should be at least a class 10) cards laying around like me. No need for the wifi adapter either. There is no need to buy a kit from the beginning if it’s just for testing and discovery. Afterwards when you figure out what you want to use them for, you can always buy more stuff 
The reason I think we need the a UBST distro for the Pi, is that so many schools and university’s use the Pi for teaching programming, and just to open up the minds of young people. I think uberStudent would fit perfectly in that context.

I hope you could use my point of view, and if you have any more questions, just shoot.....

regards
Idriz

A fanless Raspberry Pi can overheat under sufficient load and hot environment, unless one opts for an aluminum case to serve as an extension of the CPU's heat-sink.

There is certainly potential for synergy with the educational goals of UberStudent and Raspberry Pi, especially for schools with limited budgets. As Ubuntu 16.04 LTS supports the ARMv7 CPU of a Raspberry Pi 2, the upcoming version of UberStudent planned to be based on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS will inherit that support. Such is not the case for the ARMv8 CPU of a Raspberry Pi 3 though; that would require something like Stephen's idea to make a version of UberStudent based on Raspbian, or Debian Edu, etc.
