For $10 the Raspberry Pi Zero W is an ultra cheap computer but is it worth it?

I always hate it when people say Minecraft isn't a graphically demanding game. And the only people that say these things are people who have never even played Minecraft, or at least not on low-end hardware. If you've played Minecraft for more than 5 minutes, you'd realize how demanding it is. Even on the lowest settings on my 2007 laptop, I only got below 15 fps. When you turn up the settings, like render distance, textures, and anti-aliasing. You're going to need at least a low-mid tier graphics card to get a solid 60+ fps. Something like the GTX 650 Ti Boost that I had a while back was doing pretty well for me. Currently on my GTX 1070 I get around 150 fps on stock Minecraft. So while it's not Crysis or anything, it's actually more demanding than CS:GO for example.
Austin you should give a try to a real pi like the new raspberry pi 3 model b +. The difference it’s huge mainly cause the zero version it’s more likely to be used on IoT projects. I have the 3 model B + and I use it as a NAS using openmediavault serving my 3TB external HDD to all my computers and my phone trough SFTP and SAMBA, also works as a time machine drive for my MacBook backups and it runs owncloud so I can have access to all my files from everywhere. On top of all that it runs osmc wich is a Kodi based software that allows me to access to all that content on my hard drive from my tv and to watch YouTube and lots of more things. It can be used in many projects and can host lots of services for home networks.
The raspberry pi it’s a really cool thing to use specially in cases like mine cause I live in a country with literally 0 internet acces from your house or your phone, and the little we have it’s strictly limited.
Let me know what you think. Also btw I’m glad you made it out of that fire and you’re doing videos again, keep doing it. Sending lots of support.
The Windows version available for this thing is the Windows IoT (Internet of Things) version. It's stripped down, and looks more like a game console menu interface.
Microsoft is making a big push for IoT, b/c there's no hardcore standards for IoT yet .. every smart bulb, outlet, hub, etc that comes out seems to have it's own pet language or software it's running. EG: if you get an amazon echo, you have to often download "skills" in the alexa app on your smartphone to help her learn how to do shit, like hook up to some company's smart outlet you bought to make it turn on and off. Reason being.. there's no standardization in IoT yet.
So, microsoft is seeing a way to get in on the IoT market by handing out the Windows IoT edition for free. The idea is that if you know how to run Windows 10, then you can be familiar with it and use the Windows IoT interface to quickly hookup and adapt devices you create (as a company) to sell to consumers. It's essentially trying to be a unified interface for all devices.
The PROBLEM with this is that Microsoft has built spyware into Windows 10 (telemetry and analysis "phone home" bullshit), and app stores.
So, the WORRY that people have is that if Microsoft gets their way and Windows IoT becomes the standard of the IoT world.. then what's to stop MS from making Windows IoT...
a) auto-update.. to which MS gets to pick-n-choose what updates, when it updates, and what it will do in the future
b) MS gets to choose to put spyware on your IoT devices to monitor what you're doing
c) MS can get with companis to leverage the spying and data aggregation to start "serving you with useful features"
d) MS starts to build app stores into your IoT devices "as a convenience", and MS gets to control the stores and profits from it
Imagine you're using a Windows IoT device, eg: smart coffee pot, and one day it decides to show you an ad for some brand of coffee filters, or coffee pods or coffee grounds. The thing has been looking at product codes on the coffee pods you've been putting into it, and notices you're not using brand XYZ.. so brand XYZ pays MS to serve non-users with an ad asking them to try brand XYZ coffee pods. And MS takes the check and sends an update to your device to show you an ad. Want to skip the ad? Sorry.. the device has been updated to force you to see the ad for 30 seconds before it will brew your coffee. And, your coffee pot has a button that comes up that if you just press it, it'll order brand XYZ coffee pods for you... b/c your Windows IoT device is hooked into your Windows Live account (or whatever the fuck Ms is calling it these days), and that has your credit card info and shipping address.. so just push the button and it'll order the pods for you (and MS gets a cut of the profits.. which means there's a middle man, which means prices go up... b/c the more middlemen you add from producer to consumer, the more the price goes up as each hand in the supply chain wants it's cut of profit from handing it off down the supply chain.)
This is the problem with having a company that's interested in data mining and profiting from it trying to wedge themselves into the IoT market as the de facto standard everyone should use.
so let me get this straight.. it's basically a gumstick computer.. but instead of having a usb male plug to be able to plug it directly into, eg: a tv to use as a gumstick htpc.. you have to plug in a separate power adapter, and then plug in a video adapter to hook it to your tv. I know hobbyists love rasberry pi's, but if your'e going to make what is essentially a gumstick version of rasberry pi, for the love of god put a male usb adapter on it. This thing is basically an htpc / retro game emulator waiting to happen. Slap a 32gb microsd card into it, and you could practically run the entire nes, snes, sega master system and genesis catalogs off it.
Ehm, that is not really THE Minecraft, this is the free version everybody could download and play, where there was only one mode: creative (do not understand why you hold a sword in the first place) - to me, Minecraft = Mining & Crafting, that is more like Grab & Place. xD
Shit review from dump man.
the Minecraft is like a VERY basic version of the game and he is not taking consideration of other items such as SD card. This is what tech review people have come too..
just clickbait title and talk shit they dont know about
