I think we can safely say that there'll be plenty more made... I missed out too, but I'm happy to wait for a little while until things have stabilised.

I'm delighted to be honest that it's gathered this much momentum for them!

I've tried, but I really can't see the appeal of this thing.

You might be right...

Some people have even said that children aren't that interested in programming and for a reason, they aren't bothered with what's underneath or inside a machine they just want to use it and play. Time will tell...

It hasn't come out yet, but my feeling is that when they decided to go with the distribution partner side, the Raspberry Pi folks didn't quite know what they really were getting.

Actually, no..
Apparently the Raspberry Pi folks are mad at the distributors..
They apparently tried and tried to warn them about the demand, and the distributors either didn't listen or didn't believe them...

Personally, I'll wait for better availability later...  ;-)

It's just been on our national BBC news.  I was quite suprised really, it had a good 2 minutes.

25-35 dollar 700Mhz 256Mb ARM computer the size of a credit card able to be run off 4AA batteries and able to play back 1080P?

I see nothing BUT potential.

That's a bit of a sweeping assumption - programming is taught so little and so poorly below BA-level college classes that it's difficult to say whether kids actually aren't interested or simply have never had a latent interest properly fed. It's like saying kids aren't interested in reading when all you've got is a shelf full of accounting manuals.
