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.

I've never found programming languages to be a hassle in any of the Linux distros or FreeBSD. Generally, I install them, and they're ready to go. I've found installing programing languages in Windows to be a hassle, and I've found many an IDE to be a hassle.


It would be nice if there was a nice, simple system ala QBASIC, which had a nice full screen IDE and simple Debugger. Most of the current stuff is really sophisticated which tends to make it complicated. I dunno how well Squeak/Pharo will work the RPi, but I would still think there's a little life in a ncurses based IDE thing that's not Emacs.
