As you may have seen, some of my blog posts contain screenshots from within Raspbian. Here's how I've taken those screenshots.
One of the things you should do when you first connect your Raspberry Pi to the internet is to run a system update to get the latest version of all the programs running on your Pi.
Programs in Raspbian are made up of a number of packages, updates to these packages are controlled by the Advanced Package Tool.
As you probably know it's easy to connect the Raspberry Pi to the internet using a network cable as it comes with a network connector built in. You just plug a cable into the connector on the Raspberry Pi and plug the other end into your router and it works. But how do you connect it to a wireless network?
I've decided to try another Operating System on my Raspberry Pi, this is a version of XBMC specially designed for the Raspberry Pi.
XBMC is a open source media center operating system which gives quick and easy access to films, music and photos on a user interface designed for a TV rather than a computer monitor. It is also designed so it can be controlled by a remote control rather than a mouse and keyboard.
