You know, I'm starting to really like the idea of a Pi. Now that I have a Linux VPS and am getting used to the command line, having an accessible GUI seems less and less important. i'm not saying it isn't important, because it would be good for new users or those who don't like the command line, but I'm starting to love the command line access you have in Linux. It's completely accessible because it's just text.
If you can't connect your Pi to ethernet, I'd either not get one or find an accessible GUI image that can be flashed to the card and use Wi-Fi. Has anyone else contacted the Raspberry Pi foundation about including Orca in Raspbian? They really should!
While researching things to do with my VPS, I found a couple of neat projects you can do with the Pi. First, you can host cheap network attached storage on your local network which is the primary reason I want one of these. You can also install Pi-hole to block all advertisements at the DNS level. That's badass! You can also apparently set up a VPN that triggers when you connect to a wireless network. That's also badass! This $35 computer sounds amazing!
I wish I had better access to ethernet ports. The AT&T router is shoved up against a wall and not easy to access. If I had better access to ethernet, I'd get one of these in a heartbeat!
