Hardware, Embedded Systems Raspberry Pi project leader Eben Upton talks about the state of Raspberry Pi, and tells us that yes -- finally -- they now have distributors in the U.S. and other countries instead trying to ship every unit from the U.K. Even better, instead of buying a batch of boards, selling them, and only then ordering another batch, the new distribution agreements mean they can keep a steady flow of orders coming in and going out.

Hey, I can understand appreciation for hardware - when you write just above, "I'd love to give RISC a run as well" ...I suppose, meaning specifically on R-Pi, because it would be fun. And, after all, I'm toying with the idea of using IRC and IM via a C64 - something which doesn't really have much of practical point.

But what Thom seems to allude to, finally being able to ~discover RISC OS, is a bit distinct. Plus it's not like Raspberry Pi will give exactly the "original" experience, possibly even not with any less bugs than under emulator - and an emu might be even smoother, considering the power of modern PC CPUs and a bit anemic one in R-Pi (BTW that, a fan of Golden Age of Arcades, I suppose? Many/most of later MAME-emulated games won't really run at very convincing speeds on R-Pi, after all ;) )
