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.

Just thinking, wouldn't it be great if (bear with me, I'm stuck in the 80's and home computers mentally) you got a home computer selection on power on, selecting one would load an emulator. The VICE project emulates a bunch of Commodore computers, there are a few ZX Spectrum emulators around and I'm sure we can find a BBC, MSX and Atari one too.

From an educational viewpoint I don't think it would be very helpful, might as well learn a programming language that's useful, but for retro people it would be very cool.
