Hardware, Embedded Systems Big news from the Raspberry Pi front today - they have a manufacturing date. "The boards will be finished on February 20. Eben and I may be going to China to make sure that the boards can be brought up properly for that date if necessary. We'll be airfreighting them to the UK immediately, so you should be able to buy them before the end of the month."

...which is just the SoC. Yeah, it seems much nicer specs-wise than the one used in R-Pi (to the point that the latter almost appears as an exercise in dumping some inept Broadcom chip, counting on some variant of local rallying around it by ~UK people), but the resulting (& nonexistent, misrepresented by yet another random blog) boards would end up fairly similar all around.

In the end, Arduino-like community, which appears to be forming around R-Pi, might be more than worth it by itself.
