Thankfully, Debian starts with the letter D, made my name suggestion reallllly easy.
I don't have twitter, so I can't give you my suggestion for the O/S name on there. :(
However, I did post before that CHIP itself should stand for Computer Has Infinite Possibilities, and any peripherals should be called DIP. Dual Input Peripheral. CHIP & DIP.
So logically, the O/S should surely be called "Salsa". :)
Clive isn't the only non tweeting backer
I find these posts hard to read because of all the gifs.
I think the name for Debian on Chip could be... Chipian :)
Can you make so CHIP can run VLC server for SmartThings home automation? This is my goal to have the CHIP be a media device.
And you should keep the OS name same as the device. C.H.I.P OS ver 1.0
@Clive and @Stephen! Post your suggestions here. We'll keep an eye out.
We should name the loaded and running OS as "Chocolate" so we all have "Chocolate C.H.I.P.s"
Chocolate CHIPs are good. **Banana** CHIPs are pretty good too though. And that would simulations be analogous to Apple and be reminiscent to the media and advertising produced thus far.
Simultaneously not simulations...sorry
I like frequent updates, but these seem aimed at the pledge levels that are going to receive their rewards earlier than I. Would it be possible to target the updates for these groups just at them and do some generic ones for the rest of us? Not complaining, just curious.
It made me giggle
I did have a question since we are talking OS. C.H.I.P. appealed to me because of it's size and portability. I like to write and know it has a word processor the will work with it. My question what would be the best way or just some ways to get the files from C.H.I.P. to a Windows box or even sync? Would something like Dropbox or OneDrive work on C.H.I.P.?
I like the idea if naming the os buffalo. Wide open spaces, freedom, and roams with you do portability. Plus buffalo chip kinda humorous
How about Debian, and get hardware support in the arm kernel?
I second the idea of naming the OS Banana, I liked the "banana for scale" in all the pics of C.H.I.P. during the campaign.
@Michael - if Debian is running on the CHIP, there is a linux client for Dropbox, and I think OneDrive can be made to work too.
If you're just trying to transfer stuff locally though, your best bet would be to set up SAMBA on the CHIP, which just lets you use Windows network shares (or provide them)...
no twitter so i can't leave a name suggestion there, but how about something like
Fully Integrated System Handler? (F.I.S.H)
My name is Dale,
.. CHIP 'n' Dale
+1 for chipian
I'm thinking the OS should be called either "OS bacon" because who hates bacon or "OS infinity" for the things that CHIP will be able to do or "OS $9" this one is obvious
I like the idea of banana being the OS name, as the banana has been going along with chip since the beginning
So, my students said the versions of CHIP OS should be based off snack chips starting with Potato. Then go from there: BBQ, Salt and Vinegar, etc.
Do a variation from Linux Mint, and call it Chocolate. That's right, Mint Chocolate Chip.
OS name Debbie. Or how about Chip-pan. Or Mushy Peas (eaten in England with chips, ie French fries). Or Chip butty (slang for sandwich and slang for friend)
For CHIP the Debian OS is simply DIP (Debian Instruction Package or similar). You put DIP on your CHIP and enjoy.
Different versions of the OS can be Bean DIP, Guacamole DIP, Cheese DIP, Clam DIP, Spinach DIP, etc.
