I'm using the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B. It's a complete Linux desktop computer with 4 USB ports, an ethernet port, an HDMI port, and onboard WiFi that is the size of a deck of playing cards. Pretty slick stuff.
I have been trying to figure out a way to replace the old "dumb terminals" from the 1980's that some of my customers are still using so I looked at the Raspberry Pi as an option.
Wednesday I installed the first one as a test. I will install more if it proves successful. There are no moving parts or fans in the case so I am curious to see how it holds up in the hot Carolina summers before we commit to any more of them.
So far so good.
Wish me luck.
