mintCast 179 - A Pi in the Cloud ... [url]http://mintcast.org/2013/10/17/mintcast-179-pi-cloud/[/url]

While I enjoyed tinkering with the Raspberry Pi for the episode, I wonder if any of these applications are really what the thing is good at. It seems to me that a simple fanless box running Mint would be a better choice for a personal cloud. It needs to be a quiet, easy-to-maintain, low power consumption box with a big disk.

A thought occurred to me as I was tinkering with the Pi..."I wonder if some flavor of Mint could be made to run on this?" Not Cinnamon, for sure, but maybe something a bit more lightweight. Got me wondering again about what makes Mint be Mint. Is a minty Pi even possible? Hmm.
