I used to have mine hooked up as a XBMC box, now it's sitting unused. Thinking about making it into a SSH/IRC bouncer.

Looks like they've announced the Raspberry Pi B+, with more USB ports, more GPIO pins, micro SD, and better audio. Looks like the specs are the same otherwise, and it costs the same.

And now you'll need a bigger power supply and a new case and oh god

Apparently it uses less power, and all the cool kids make cases out of Lego anyway ;)

but all those peripheral expansion possibilities will need at least 3 amps

They may have increased the number of ports but they are all still connected to only one controller, including the Ethernet-port. That drags down the performance a lot.

I love my Raspberry Pi but I wish it had a little more power. I use it as a HTPC with Raspbmc and it works alright for streaming from a Plex server on my desktop. I'd like to try out the new B+, but at the same time I'm also looking into some of the more powerful alternatives.

With my new NAS, the RasPi is significantly more portable and useful around a house where there's more TVs than media players.

I use my Raspberry Pi for absolutely nothing now, I often forget that I even own one. It mostly collects dust, I get to worried when plugging cords into it that the ports would snap off. So now I just don't plug anything into it and it suits me just fine.

With my newfound wealth (sarcasm) from my awful job I am going to be grabbing one of these
