Found elsewhere, looks promising:

http://www.raspberrypi.org/

Only prototypes for now, but if this makes it into serious production run figures it'll be great news for Linux. You can't install M$ on it, it has an ARM proc Wink

Why not? Windows CE runs on ARM Wink

David Braben is one of the coolest people ever, but I still wish he'd focus on Elite IV. Or just a modern, networked version of Frontier.

I think they would be great for digital signage. Now all I need is an os which is literally just a web browser in full screen mode to run on it Very Happy

oh and for it to be networkable

Hi all...

"""
We plan to develop, manufacture and distribute an ultra-low-cost computer,
for use in teaching computer programming to children. We expect this
computer to have many other applications both in the developed and the
developing world.
"""

I saw this a day or so ago on another ML...

It serves two of my requirements that I consider in everything I do...

1) Aimed at kids in some way.
2) Effectively a development board that is fully hackable...

I will probably get one if only for the word in the first paragraph - FUN. :)

Since hearing the Raspbery Pi mentioned on the tuxradar podcast last month my interest has definitely been piqued.

The Raspberry Pi group recently announced on their website ( www.raspberrypi.org ) that they recently went into mass production and the first one's will be avaliable at the end of January.

Yippee at $25 to $35 a pop I can finally have that server farm I've always wanted. Smile

I think the first batch will be limited to one per customer, and the 35 one will be released first.

Anyone manage to get one?
I might have been too late. The sites had a pre-order option, but I wasn't sure if that means they haven't got the first batch from the factory yet.
I've registered my interest on one of the sites at least. I also noticed there was 5 quid price difference on the sites -- weird.

I'd say my thoughts exactly, except I had to google "caveat emptor". Laughing

I heard Farnell had sold out, but I don't know how as both their server and RS's were timing out right from the 6am launch. Farnell's later had a notice saying the site was down for "routine maintenance" while RS only let you register an interest.

It was even the top trending topic on twitter in the UK, but that was purely down to people complaining about the broken sites.

This one appears even dodgier!

Worrying parts: 999, and "pre-order listing"... Rolling Eyes

Only wish I was able to get one this morning on launch. Still, nice to out-trend the IPAD3 Smile
