Re: Pre-Orders for Future Batches

<t>If it isnt crystal clear from the topic, what I am about to say is NOT intended to refer to the first batch of RPis<br/> <br/> I think it may be useful for users and the foundation itself if you were to accept pre-orders (commitments) for follow-on batches of Raspberry Pis.<br/> <br/> That way:<b...
