Much awaited credit card size $25 computer Raspberry Pi is about
to go in production early next year. First run beta devices are
currently being tested. If all goes well, you will be able to
purchase it in January.
If you don't know, Raspberry Pi can plug into your TV and a
keyboard. It can be used for many of the things your desktop PC
does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays
high-definition video. The device will come with an ARM processor,
a USB hub, an HDMI out, a 3.5mm jack and will support Linux out of
Debian, Fedora and ArchLinux will be supported from the start
and more distributions will be added later on.
