I am looking for a computer to be placed inside a turnstile. Someone suggested to me that I can use raspberry pi. Yet, I don't have knowledge in it but it sounds interesting so I'd like to try. There are questions that bothers me.
In this world where Mac and Windows are (in my point of view) much more famous. Why would I choose raspberry pi which uses linux? It seems difficult to advertise a system that runs in linux right or is it?. Aside from that, it is also difficult to search for products that will be compatible with linux os, such as rfid readers or any other item. So what's good with raspberry?
