Hello! Im Patricio, and i got my first Atari 130XE at the age of 5! since then, (and luckly me) always had a computer by my side.
I always loved embeded systems. Im a microcontroller fan, and use a lot of Microchip Pic micros for fun (and sometimes for profit lol) and I see a huge future in the R-Pi. I remember when I was finishing high school (in the mid 90s) that I attached a 100mhz pentium computer to the trunk of my car, to listen mp3, and now we got mp3 players that cant be smaller, because they need buttons to play. Thats happening with computers. Having a full blown computer (I mean, OS, GUI, network and devices) into a credit card size pcb, its a huge success, and bigger than that, is the price of this computer. I would love to see R-PIs in schools here in south america. The most of the people doesnt need number crunching mega pcs on their desktops.
I cant wait to have one!!
