The $35 price of the Raspberry Pi computer belies just how versatile the credit card-sized board truly is. One of the more recent uses for the best-selling board is perhaps the most unlikely yet, as a full Windows desktop for business. While the Pi may not run the desktop version of Windows 10, it is more than capable of running Windows as a virtual desktop. In this instance, Windows doesn't run on the Pi itself, but rather on a more powerful computer, which then streams the OS to the Pi.
The official OS for the $35 Raspberry Pi computer has been updated, fixing a bug that could allow the Pi to be hacked via its Wi-Fi chip. The Pi's official Raspbian OS is built on the Linux-based OS Debian and has been updated to the latest Debian 9 release, known as Stretch. The update from the old Debian Jessie-based version of Raspbian includes various security fixes, including a patch for the Broadpwn vulnerability.
Despite its low price of $35, most businesses wouldn't choose the Raspberry Pi as a desktop system for work. A big obstacle to firms using the Pi is that it won't run the full desktop version of Windows -- a necessity for those whose line-of-business software requires Microsoft's operating system.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
