Five more operating systems for the Raspberry Pi 2

RetroPie

Fancy turning the Pi into an emulator for classic computers and consoles? Then check out RetroPie.

RetroPie bundles together more than 30 emulators of much-loved systems from the past 30 years - including Amigas, Ataris, the N64 and the Sega Mega Drive.

The system is based on the Raspbian operating system but is given a console-esque look by the EmulationStation front end, as well as supporting a range of retro controllers and joysticks.

The download is available here, alongside instructions for installation.
