Luckily many households *still* have full computers such that kids who are inclined to tinker with technology at home can


Well, that's exactly what Raspberry-Pi for.

viton,

"Well, that's exactly what Raspberry-Pi for."

I suspect it's harder and less rewarding than learning to program applications on computers as we did. Never the less I'm sure the raspberry pi is a fine device to learn the niche of embeded programming. In the context of our discussion though, can a kid program a raspberry pi with a stock ipad (*)?


On a related note, there still aren't any US distributors carrying the Raspberry Pi. Farnell's website will ship internationally with a ~50 day lead time. Alliedelec shows zero stock, which as far as I can tell has been the case since the Raspberry Pi debut. Supply hasn't kept up with demand.

* Edit: If yes, I'd be interested in reading a link about that!
