Re: The raspberry pi foundation has no employees?

At this instant we have no employees as such. The six Trustees cannot by law benefit in any way from the Charity - its all voluntary.
We do have some people working as sub-contractors, but mainly is voluntary and spare time labour

Re: Raspberry Pi as the successor of BBC Micro

As Eben said, we spent a while talking to the BBC, but the problem is that as a public body they cannot endorse one particular manufacturer, even a not-for-profit.

Just finding the right people to talk to took a while.
