I would really like to replace my Subsonic server with something that won't be affected by what I am doing on my PC.

Sounds like a fun idea! You can expect to receive an email in the next week or so to arrange for shipping of your new Raspberry Pi.

With our ongoing Raspberry Pi and Arduino articles, we know some of you need some gear to follow along! As a result we've grabbed a bunch of Raspberry Pi's (Model B, 512MB) from Newark Canada for some great giveaways!
