Hardware, Embedded Systems This morning, I experienced the nerd equivalent of a Black Friday $50 iPad sale. At 07:00 CET, the first batch of the much-anticipated Raspberry Pi went on sale, and while Raspberry Pi itself was very properly prepared, the two large international retailers actually selling the device weren't - despite warnings from Raspberry Pi about the enormous amount of traffic that would come their way, the two sites crumbled to dust within seconds. There's good news too - the cheaper model A has seen its RAM doubled at no additional cost.

So, media and 3D rendering will be excellent despite the slowish CPU (and, my understanding is that everything in the OS land is open source, too - the binary blob runs on the GPU itself).

AFAIK, we're talking about a binary blob Linux GPU driver too, just like those of AMD and NVidia on x86.
