On this page I have tried to gather a bunch of interesting and relevant Raspberry Pi resources such that you don’t have to search the internet for them.
Raspberry Pi – Operating Systems
The Raspbian “Wheezy” operating system is the standard operating system to run on the Raspberry Pi. It has very good integration with the hardware and comes pre-loaded with a graphical user interface and development tools. This will come in very handy if you are not too experienced in a linux enviornment.
Other useful tools
Win32DiskImager is a great windows tool for writing to the SD cards used by the Raspberry Pi.
