Hardware, Embedded Systems The BBC reviews the Raspberry Pi. "The device may inspire a new generation of computer programmers or it could leave children used to smartphones and tablet computers baffled and bewildered. A great experiment with the way we teach computing has begun and we can't be sure how it will end." Mine's coming the week of May 21.

And I am eagerly awaiting them. Not because they are the world's best computer or that I think I will replace my high powered desktop or laptop with one.

Their small size, inexpensive price, full set of features, and reasonable performance will open up a world of possibilities for hobbyists and companies. This will especially bet true once the "Arduino-like" add-on for the Pi is finished.
