My Raspberry Pi 3 has arrived. It's booting successfully. Have yet to
get wireless/bluetooth working.
Happy to demo it at next wlug meeting.

How do you guys feel like given a shootout/demo at the next meeting?
RPi3 vs PINE64?
Might be a bit risky to yes at this point. The PINE64 is promised to
be delivered this month, but it might not arrive to the end of the
month. And there might be a bit of work getting it up and going.
Will you have RPi3 for the next meeting?
Yeah I should have mine. I ordered mine from Element14 and they are
currently processing the order. They had 118 or so in stock when I
ordered and 14 left after I finished my order. The next batch is due
in 3rd March. Hopefully I get one from the first batch. I should have
it by next wlug meeting but just gimme a few days. Will let you know
as soon as it ships.
The PINE64 looks very cool and I wouldn't mind one of them.
