    Not sure if this has been discussed before but ..............

    Who's got a Pi, what do you do with it, do you use them in the workplace anything else that is Pi orientated.

    I do nothing with them, they are a poor mans NUC, Buy an Intel NUC 4"-4" in size with a i5 processor, 16GB of RAM and supports ESXi.

    I have one, running Raspbian. Currently using it as my DNS (bind9) and DHCP server (isc-dhcp-server) at home.
    It's great for network services :)

    I had one but decided if I opened it I would lose a great many hours.... so I sold it on eBay. Big fan of anything like this, this is one of my fav examples of the fun uses. BTW asterix, I'd never heard of a NUC, interesting read :)

    The NUC sucks more juice, it's NIC cuts out with more than one HDMI cable attached (which I really hope they've fixed by now) and costs a boatload more. We can't really compare them in fairness or suggest the NUC as a replacement as they serve two entirely different fields really.
