Still asking the question. Anyone here actually DOING anything with their Pi or is it still sitting in its packaging?
I shouldn't complain. I have $150 worth of bird's eye maple downstairs "waiting" for me to build a table out of it. And waiting, and waiting...

Meh. ICS was pushed to my Razr a couple weeks ago, and I seriously question why. There's no perceivable increase in performance, and the feature set is so close to being identical to the previous version it's not even worth mentioning the differences. Basically it just forced me to figure out where they'd moved a couple of things -- apparently for no valid reason.

Troll.

You seriously can't notice the difference between Gingerbread and ICS?!? Yeah right. If you wanted me to list 5 differences between them I'm not sure I can ONLY list 5. ICS is lightyears ahead of GB in every single metric possible.

If you're THAT inept then you really need a iPhone. Those new Apple commercials are made for YOU.

It's questionable how smoothly it will run; ICS was built with 1GB of ram in mind. On my Kindle Fire (which has 512MB)the barebones ICS rom uses about 300 to 350MB of ram, and all of the major browsers (Opera, Dolphin, Chrome and Firefox) use anywhere from 70 to 100+ MB each with a page open.
Keeping in mind that the RasPi splits its ram between CPU and GPU at boot, that leaves you with about negative 242MB of ram :P
They must be making a whole lot of modifications and dropping a ton of features.

Once it has ICS, JB isn't far behind.
