After the first read of this German article I thought the author didn't quite understand what the idea behind the Raspberry Pi is. However, after a second read I think the article is a good description about what is currently possible with the Raspberry Pi. The author also mentions how users of qwertz-keyboards can login - something which might frustrate neewbies at the very beginning.

You've managed to duplicate the URL of the second link onto your 3rd link Liz.
Feel free to delete this post after correcting it :)

With the obligatory snide comment from regular commentator Lee Dowling. He really seems to have a bee somewhere in that bonnet.

I've noticed.

My heart sinks on seeing certain logins on certain sites. There's this guy on the Reg, and my personal favourite at the moment is a guy on Wikipedia who keeps on adding a bunch of unsourced, closed-source-GPU rage to the first para of the Raspberry Pi article there, too (a large number other editors keep removing it - for NPOV reasons I've steered well clear - but he's amazingly persistent).

Eben, busy antagonising one of my childhood heroes. (Does anyone else still own their Fighting Fantasy books?)

Another BBC mention. Linus Torvalds interview...

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-18419231

The recent launch of the Raspberry Pi, running on Linux, has attracted a lot of attention. Are you hopeful it will inspire another generation of programmers who can contribute to the Linux kernel?

So I personally come from a "tinkering with computers" background, and yes, as a result I find things like Raspberry Pi to be an important thing: trying to make it possible for a wider group of people to tinker with computers and just playing around.

And making the computers cheap enough that you really can not only afford the hardware at a big scale, but perhaps more important, also "afford failure".

By that I mean that I suspect a lot of them will go to kids who play with them a bit, but then decide that they just can't care.

But that's OK. If it's cheap enough, you can afford to have a lot of "don't cares" if then every once in a while you end up triggering even a fairly rare "do care" case.

So I actually think that if you make these kinds of platforms cheap enough - really "throw-away cheap" in a sense - the fact that you can be wasteful can be a good thing, if it means that you will reach a few kids you wouldn't otherwise have reached.

Why are so many online articles, such as this one:
liz wrote:http://www.computeractive.co.uk/ca/news/2183999/raspberry-pi-marks-secondary-school
still using images of the old beta board? Might this confuse people when the RPi they receive looks different to the one they've been seeing in all the articles they've been reading? (the big give-away is the colour of the audio and video connectors)
Maybe it'd be worth putting together a "Press Pack" of clean high-quality images of the current version of the RPi board? :idea:

(just answered my own question :oops: - it's the image from http://www.raspberrypi.org/faqs )

LOL I had the exact same thought when I saw the Torvalds interview on BBC site this morning.

Feel free to use mine if you go down this route and they are suitable (links in sig). ;) If you want something specific shooting, I'm also willing to have a go. :D

At least it's a Pi. The 'expert review' picture isn't even the right device (certainly not like any images I've seen of the Pi).

I'd missed that link. Just tried reading it now but had to give up due to all the crappy adverts :x
