Ordered myself a Raspberry Pi today , when I get it I'm gonna test it out see how it does mining, see if a farm will be worth it or not.

Raspberry PI alone will not hit 1MH/s.

Under development Modular UPGRADEABLE Miner (MUM). Looking for investors.
Changing one PCB with screwdriver and you have brand new miner in hand... Plug&Play, scalable from one module to thousands.

I think OP means to connect a GPU or FGPA to it. Mining on it's own processor would of course be a waste of time and money and silicone!

I plan to use mine for xbmc. But I could not see why it could not be a low powered controller for fpga miners it likes python.

Don't forget that the memory sits right on top of the processor. One or both could easily burn out quickly.

It might be nice as a "command + control server" for FPGAs or a small in-house pool, I doubt there's any use as dedicated miner though.

Yes, that was my plan, might look into using it for remote reboot of rigs aswell

You cant, unless there is some sort of crazy usb to pci-e device =)  I'm pretty sure the use for these with mining would be as a host for FPGAs or maybe to run monitoring on a farm.  You could probably also run P2Pool on this if you wanted to.

Nope, they are real. They use PCMCIA cards or Expresscards and convert to PCI and/or PCIe. Here is one example of such a product: http://www.netstor.com.tw/_03/03_02.php?ODI

Yeah but in question was USB to PCI-E Smiley
notice how that netstor product looks a bit like BFL Rig Box? XD

PCMCIA is PCI in a different format.
