You could do both. You could put it in one of these to show it off and still use it for something.

Even if you don't use it right away. Mounted in the clear case, people could pick up to have a look without damaging it with static shock etc.

I'm already doing that. I have RISC OS on one, REASBIAN on another and RASPBMC on a third. Power down, swap the card, and boot up. For me its just to try the different OS's to see what I like and don't like. I haven't tried the RASPBMC yet. I like RASPBIAN over RISC. Everything worked with RASPBIAN including my WIFI Dongle without having to install any drivers. My next step is to redo my SD Card with RASPBIAN on it for the newer version with the improved browser. I'll do that on my laptop with a Micro SD to SD adapter. What was really nice was that my Wireless Logitech Keyboard worked right away with its Unifying receiver. It's a K400 that has a touchpad built into it where the number pad would normally be.
