What Operating Systems Can I Use?

Any 32 or 64 Bit OS that runs on a Raspberry Pi 4 will run on the Pi-Cube.

Third-party operating systems are available for download via the official Raspberry Pi website (see link below). The Pi can run a large range of systems, including the official Raspbian OS, Ubuntu Mate, Snappy Ubuntu Core, the Kodi-based media centers OSMC and LibreElec, and many more.

What can a Raspberry Pi be used for?

The Raspberry Pi can do a surprising amount. Over 30 million Raspberry Pi’s have been sold to date with approximately half of them going into Industrial and Commercial use and the other half being used in education and by a wide array of amateur tech enthusiasts who use Pi boards as media centres, file servers, retro games consoles, routers, and network-level ad-blocker – the list is endless.

Why did you choose NVMe SSDs rather than SATA 3 or mSATA SSDs?

NVMe connects directly (via a PCIe switch) to the native PCIe Gen 2 single lane exposed by the Broadcom SoC and there is an overall 10% improvement in performance in using this bus over the fastest SATA and mSATA SSDs. We wanted to deliver a no compromise solution that squeezed every bit of performance out of the Broadcom SoC and we found both in testing and in practical everyday use this improvement is noticeable. Despite being a little more expensive NVMe is without question the superior solution.
