Creating a classic gaming machine is one of the best things you can do with a Raspberry Pi, and there’s no better way to do it than to install RetroPie. RetroPie is one of the single most popular platforms for the Pi, but the people behind it are “just a few blokes,” developer Herb Fargus told us. They take donations, but there’s no big money-making scheme behind the hit concept.
That hasn’t stopped others from making money off of the hard work done by Herb and fellow developer Jools Wills, though. Shady dealers that Herb calls “greedy people” have been packaging RetroPie with copyrighted content and selling it as their own, frustrating the RetroPie team while also giving the platform an unwanted association with piracy.
