In this 6th installment of DJ's Live Hack Events, we'll be installing EZ-Builder on a Raspberry Pi, install plugins and control a robot. There's a conversation regarding NeoPixels and how to drive them from EZ-Builder. I'll connect a NeoPixel to an Arduino and control it via EZ-Builder.

Totally - although I’m looking forward to windows on the Pi. I was thinking of installing it this weekend to try out, but since there’s no WiFi support yet it won’t be very useful. 

Apparently disabling a ton of the graphic enhancements will speed it up quite a bit. It doesn’t use the gpu yet, so there’s a lot of room for performance improvements in the upcoming months.

Dj I have tested the windows on pi and followed this tutorial on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBslh3nWu0UEZ-Builder is not to bad speed wise about a 5-10 second delay for loading.There is no wifi support but there is ethernet and I think you can use a wifi dongle.

I was watching that video yesterday - ironically! How long did it take you to get running?
