REQ: punc fix, cap fix[edit]

Could an established editor please fix the punctuation and capitalization errors (especially in the introductory section)?

Raspberry Pi Model A+[edit]

OS Support[edit]

Pi is developing quite the range of OS support now. I've hacked in (cough) Diet Pi as it is, in my experience, a stable and very versatile solution. I'm using it for a VPN, DNLA server and even a three variations of Minecraft servers distributed over just two machines. It also comes with at least two desktops (Mate and LXDE) and a bunch of other stuff. Someone should make a page. I'm not connected to the project (save for being a patron) but I believe it deserves a mention. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:00, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

What is "overvolt"?[edit]

In section Overclocking there is "6 overvolt", "2 overvolt" and "0 overvolt". What does that mean? It is not clear at all from the context.

For instance, is there an implicit unit, like 0.1 volt? In that case, shouldn't the voltage be stated instead, like 0.6 V overvoltage? --Mortense (talk) 10:17, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

This explains better than I ever could exactly what overvolt is in regards to overclocking. However, you're correct about the unit inclusion, I imagine it should read 2v overvolt -- samtar talk or stalk 10:25, 22 July 2016 (UTC)
Isn't the correct term overvoltage (over + voltage)? Wiktionary has it, but in a slightly different context. Or perhaps as an action, overvolting, as in Wikipedia article Dynamic voltage scaling.
BTW, the unit must be lower than 1 volt. 6 volts is way too much; it would fry the electronics. It could be 0.01 volt, +0.06 V for the core voltage of 1.2 V (5% relative change). Or it could be some entirely different unit. --Mortense (talk) 12:45, 22 July 2016 (UTC)
Looking closer, yes I think you're right there - I personally would write it as overvolting the whatever by 0.2 volts? -- samtar talk or stalk 14:04, 22 July 2016 (UTC)
