Scratch

A couple of questions: one, why no Scratch topic under Programming?

Two, probably a stupid question, but why does scratch not run remotely as in:

Re: CANADA! anyone in the GTA?

See: http://www.meetup.com/Raspberry-Pi/ There was a meeting of about 15 folk last Thursday, July 5. Sorry to have posted this after the fact but I only just noticed this thread.

Where are the demos Eben speaks of?

Thanks.

Re: Which distro ?

If you've messed around with Ubuntu on other architectures you'll be comfortable with Debian on Raspberry Pi / ARM.
