If you want a tripcode containing specific words, you can download a program designed to search for tripcodes, such as Tripcode Explorer.

Raspberry Pi thread ScorbunnyCountry code: blank.gif, country type: ponyflag, valid: 42096398

So...uh...I have a Pi Zero and I'm thinking of using it as a computer, but I'm still deciding on either Raspbian or DietPi. So, which one should I choose and why do you think so?

It all depends on what you plan to do with your Pi as a computer. If you hope for a bargain basement desktop, Debian is still the best overall experience. I can't comment on either of the two options you've posted given a lack of experience with either.

I was just going through YT yesterday and got a couple of recommendations on my favorite computer related subject: Ad Blocking.

I'd never heard of PiHole. This makes use of the cheapest Pi as a DNS server that can eliminate ad content across your local network rather than having to maintain other localized software solutions like uBlock on a daily basis. The beauty of PiHole is it deals with any internet device connected to your LAN. Want to watch YT on your flat screen TV with a native app you can't modify? Just add PiHole.

Lubuntu is my go-to for balancing lightweight and utility.

>If you hope for a bargain basement desktop
I am indeed hoping for that.

>Debian

If I remember correctly, Raspbian is a fork of Debian. NOOBS comes with it and NOOBS is an installer that you put onto the SD card and then put the SD card into the Pi...and off you go I guess.

>>42096411
Ubuntu Pi Flavour Maker, eh? I'll check that out eventually. Just remember that I have a Raspberry Pi Zero W.

Y'all ever thought about playing calculator games on a Pi Zero?

That's what I'm kinda thinking of right now.

Okay, I'm sorry in advance for bumping this thread again, but I actually know what I'm gonna use my Pi Zero for! Retro gaming.

I know that's a bit cliche, but what OS should I use? I'm thinking RetroPie, but what do you guys think?

>RetroPie

Considering it's intended specifically to run emulators, that's probably best.

Otherwise, Arch and the Debian/*buntu family tend to get the most support.

Lakka seems to be Arch-based from what I've heard, but that one is in heavy development yet.

RetroPie it is, I guess.

I made a RetroPie SD card for my Pi Zero today. I hope to get a gamepad later this month or something.

I'm definitely playing Doom on my Pi Zero sometime. I just don't know when or even what WAD I should use.

AnonymousCountry code: blank.gif, country type: ponyflag, valid: 1 42097597

>>42097596
Aside from the official Doom, Doom 2, TNT, Plutonia, Nerve and Sigil?

Since Doom64 is coming to switch, it's a good time to experience the 'true' Doom 3, either with EX, Absolution or Brutal 64.

Otherwise, my faves are Hell on Earth Starter Pack (or whatever they're calling it now) and Plutonia 2.

Or maybe Chex Quest.

I was thinking something Boom-compatible, so I can play with a controller. I don't have a keyboard for my Pi Zero btw. Even if I did, it would be a wireless keyboard and mouse combo tbh.

>>42097598

The heresy of FPS with controller aside, isn't gzdoom mutually compatible with boom?

>>42097599
I'm unsure, but I'm probably gonna play Doom64 TC Absolution later anyway.

what if there was a Raspberry Pi OS called "Winblows" like "blowing a raspberry" and as a play on "Windows" and how it sucks

i dont know anything about the question asked i just wanted to say this.

>>42097605
I mean...people are working on porting Windows 10 to ARM. So, Windows on RPi may actually be possible.

However, I think Linux and RISC OS are the best options for RPi anyway.

There's even an official version of Windows 10 for rpi called Windows 10 IoT Core

ScorbunnyCountry code: blank.gif, country type: ponyflag, valid: 1 42097612

>>42097610
Yeah, but that's more for IoT stuff. I usually prefer desktops and stuff like that. Hence why I chose RetroPie for retrogaming stuff. I could choose Lakka instead, but they're having issues at the moment iirc.

>>42097612
Yeah, you wouldn't want to use Windows as a desktop OS on a Pi anyways

ScorbunnyCountry code: blank.gif, country type: ponyflag, valid: 1 42097614

>>42097613
Probably not. If I were to set up a Raspberry Pi 3 or 4 as a desktop, I might use Raspbian or something.
