  1. Thank you for this – I’m at the stage where I haven’t a clue how the GPIO works, I just want to _use_ the thing ;-)

    I know this article is a few weeks old, but it’s worth noting that adafruit’s RPi distro Occidentalis comes with GPIO, I2C, SSH etc support enabled. It looks like a good distro for anyone doing I/O work.
