Watching BBC Click they showed a device which is aimed at getting children to program again. I was really entrigued, and just thought I could buy one because of how cheap it's going to be, and the capabilites of such a device.
If you still don't know what I'm on about, visit; link text
For the price £15 ($25), this device will sell loads. I'll be buying one, and I'm sure everybody else will be too.
800mhz ARM, 1080p output, 256 SDRAM and more on the link I posted.
Express opinions here and your initial thoughts. I was amazed when I saw it!

Raspberry Pi! YUM! haha. I think it is a good idea, as low priced, and small as it is. Although, for the specs, I might not get it. There are a lot of possibilities open for this, hopefully it makes it to the US!

Only problem I see is the people that are going to go "Yeah but after a keyboard, mouse, and monitor you're at like $120!"
I'm looking forward to getting one of these to install Arch on and see how far I can push 700mhz :D

Seems lame. Why not concentrate on a language or OS and have it available for anyone to run on existing computers? I don't get the thumb drive idea or reasoning.
And there's no shortage of english-like languages. Just grab one and extend it.
