Hardware, Embedded Systems We all know platforms like the Beagleboard, which are cheap hardware platforms which can be used in all sorts of projects. A new entry into this market is Raspberry Pi, a British ARM board which is slated to be released in the fourth quarter of this year. For a mere $25, you'll have a fully-configured ARM-based 1080p-capable mini-motherboard. The device is still in development, and only a few days ago, the alpha version of the board was demonstrated running Quake III.

I'll probably buy two. One to set up as a media center (since it can hardware-decode 1080p and has HDMI output), one that I'll probably use as a low-power server.

I think the Raspberry Pi will have a huge impact. Another commenter compared it to lego, and that's exactly what it is. Modern-age lego that will be fun for all kinds of projects.
