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.

An emulation of BBC BASIC would be awesome.


There's been an effort underway for a few months now to port RISC OS to the Raspberry Pi. Unfortunately it seems they're still some way away from release. Once they're done though you won't have an emulation of BBC BASIC, you'll have legitimate full-blown BBC BASIC V running natively.

You don't have to, if it's RISC OS you're after - they already give a free way: http://www.osnews.com/thread?509236 (though yeah, via emulation; TBH & IMHO probably more convenient long term, on a laptop, than toying around with R-Pi)
