Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I've been really looking forward to the release of the super-micro-super-cheap-ARM-computer RaspberryPi and one of my questions is "where will I get help!?"

I love StackExchange, so where exactly could I ask questions? I know that it of course depends on the questions but where do these end up going?


  1. How to install X Linux distribution on RaspberryPi. SuperUser, Unix, or neither?
  2. How to do [electrical mod] on RaspberryPi. Electronics or none?

I'm sure there are a few others I could think of, but basically it boils down to should we treat the RaspberryPi like a device or like a PC? Or should we just create a raspberrypi.stackexchange? :)

I have created a Raspberry-Pi proposal in Area51

To support, define (or close) this proposal, you can go here.

Damn you even beat me to the Raspberry Pi forums! – Earlz Dec 5 '11 at 20:26
Oops - sorry. Thanks for supporting though. Lots of users to go. – iandotkelly Dec 5 '11 at 23:57

For hardware questions, you could use the Electronics Stack Exchange site.

For software questions, it depends. They'll go on the site that they would best fit on now, which could be Super User, Unix or Ubuntu.

If you want a RaspberryPi Stack Exchange, then you should create one and generate interest at Area 51.

Super User should be fine in this case, as long as you're using the Raspberry Pi like a "real" computer. The only question is if you'll get answers, but we'll see about that. – slhck Sep 14 '11 at 19:06
