Raspberry Pi 09.11.11

This is genuinely amazing – a computer for $25! The Raspberry Pi Foundation have developed, and are soon to launch, an ultra-low cost computer, for use in teaching computer programming to children. Like the best ideas it’s “smacks-forehead-with-palm-of-hand” simple… I’m sure it’s not been quite so straight forward to put together. But the idea of a basic computer made form off-the-shelf parts and built as in-expensively as possible is a very attractive idea being the antithesis of some other fruity manufacturers.
