a raspberry pi :)

The question is, will it be shipping before Christmas (2011, Gregorian Calendar :P ) ?

I am waiting on the version made of the same material as those power balls, so if I ever loose my temper with it I can play squash with it instead of smashing it against the wall....

Why are people so convinced that anything will be \"all over by Christmas\"?

:-P

The FAQ says it will be done but seeing it is December and all they sell is stickers it might be next Christmas.

JMO/YMMV

They\'ve got the PC boards. Assuming there were no electrical problems with the initial boards, e.g., bad power connections, they\'re probably being populated at this time. I suspect we\'ll see a populated board on the home page pretty soon. If those work, or can be made to work with minimal rework, those could be auctioned before the end of the year.

Just my own guesses. While it can be hard to wait, I\'m glad they\'re being careful.

Agreed. Careful is better than quick.

I\'d promised myself one of these for Christmas, and was going to get one for my brother too. I can wait until they are ready, but will have to get bro something to open on Christmas day. A Rasberry Pi would have hit the spot perfectly as far as he is concerned, and I am now having difficulty coming up with an alternative. If you couldn\'t have a Raspberry Pi, what would you choose to receive on Christmas morning? Any (wholesome and comparably priced) ideas would be appreciated.
Thanks.

PS, he\'s at that difficult age to buy for. (35 years old)

all I want for Xmas is for Mariah Carey to die a horrible death. That video with Bieber should be banned on grounds of awfulness on so many levels.

Well you could get him an ACTUAL raspberry pie and include a card saying he will be getting a Raspberry Pi as soon as they start shipping.
