Well ... I can tell you that Pi 2 + Arch rocks !!
Runs very very fast compared with the normal Pi.

Also very nice to see all CPU-cores working to get things done.

I am now compiling FPC and Lazarus (Pascal RAD IDE), while at the same time running headless a vnc server and browsing the internet with FireFox. No problems at all !!

And running a cloud server like 'OwnCloud' is now a breeze !!

You will have fun !!

OwnCloud on a quad core might actually be useable now! It was way too slow for me using a Pogoplug E02 (1.2Ghz 256MB).

Owncloud still not that fast on RPi2.
:oops:
I use Apache as server.
And run directly from SD-card.
I will test again with external (SSD-)disk, and perhaps a faster server.
