If you’re looking to tinker with the $35 Raspberry Pi computer (raspberrypi.org), then you’re going to need to install your own Linux operating system. We’ve found that Berryboot does this job with elan and style.
“Berryboot allows you to boot into as many Raspberry Pi operating systems as you want. Berryboot is pretty self-explanatory. Just install Berryboot on your SD card and run the program. That fill format your SD card and give you an option to download a few of the more popular operatings systems like Rasbian, Sugar, and others. You can also add your operating systems as well, but it takes a bit of work in the command line. It’s easy enough to manually swap operating systems on a Raspberry Pi since they’re just installed on an SD card, but if you want to have them all on one card Berryboot is an easy way to do it. Head over to the Berryboot site for the installation guide.”
