Linux Software for the Raspberry Pi is quickly moving forward. Beyond the several core Linux distros, another couple dozen systems are available, with NetBSD, FreeBSD, and Chromium imminently stepping into the mix. (Ubuntu will not join them as it requires ARMv7 and the Pi is ARMv6). Two dozen programming languages are available, including Python, Perl, Java, Ruby 1.9.2, BASIC, and more. Since the Pi is a full fledged ARM computer, it should run nearly any ARM app within its system requirements. See the RPi Wiki or Foundation website for more info.

In the comments above, it looks like everybody is complaining about some defects of the rPi. It may not be perfect, but (1) nothing is perfect (2) it's € 32.88 VAT incl.

Cheap per unit, but consider how much money was spent in total; how many resources expanded... (wasted?)
Especially when it seems that there are comparably priced less limited options; just with worse PR.
