    I am not confident about releasing my source codes to hosting companies, so I made a decision and just purchased a Raspberry Pi 2 (model b)!!!
    I'm so excited haha. Can't wait get my bots run on it 24/7.

    I used to work with 10+ year old notebooks, but they are noisy, big, and waste too much power.
    All I will need with this is an ethernet cable and a phone charger lol.

    Hope everything goes well with my delivery and my package will arrive before/at Christmas.

    I have one - but don't be too confident on being able to run many bots simultaneously on it :party:

    I prefer using virtual OS on my home computer for such purposes, it's easy to backup and system resources are easily scalable if I need them.

    A Raspberry Pi is a mini computer for 20-35 dollars with ARM prossesor the same as a mobile phone so it cant run windows or other x86 operating system. so you need a raspberry pi operating system,
    I did heart something about windows 10 supporting ARM.

    Well as I see it comes with a fan, in case of rpi, I just wanted "toy" I can play around with. I would rather invest in building a server if i needed something stronger than that.

    Anyways, I decided to not to go with rpi 2 after some research. I found out that there is a much cheaper alternative for what i need.

    It's even stronger slightly, but only costs $15. It's not about the money.. but why i would pay more than twice of the amount for the same thing ahah. :)

    One of the advantages of being schizophrenic is that you can surprise yourself on christmas day!
