    What opinion on this do the Pi users have?

    I have contacted Astroprint team about the P2 and their software compatibility.

    They answered me :
    We're not compatible yet because they upgrades their chipset.
    However we're ordering one today and getting on porting the AstroBox software over.

    That's a good news.

    I was literally minutes away from ordering my B+ on Amazon when i discovered the PI 2 was released. The only downside is that it isn't available on Amazon yet. I did already purchase a case.

    Edit... When I purchased the case on Wednesday it was $14

    Mine in 2 weeks... this can be THE revolution, just when I read on their site an upgrade to B+ was unlikely... now boom! quad core 1Gb RAM! Yeeha!
