I've repeatedly advised against it, and true to form people did it anyway and it ended in tears. At least one guy did own up afterwards that it was a terrible idea

The RPi has the computing power of a PC from the mid-1990s, before MAME was started. There are, shall we say, significant compromises in emulation quality involved in making any kind of emulation run on a platform that constrained and so MAMEdev strongly recommends you look elsewhere. Something like a Gigabyte BRIX with a Core i5 or i7 will give you full modern PC power in a tiny attractive case and should run stock MAME and popular frontends quite well on either Windows 7 or Linux.
