    surprised they are moving away from kano os but now makes sense why they left it stuck on an old build of raspbian. we have pi based kano pc,s which are great learning devices but kano never offer a decent option of upgrading to a new build.

    Update: Microsoft has issued a statement to clarify that while the Kano PC will include Minecraft: Education Edition pre-loaded, it will not actually be playable unless 'activated with the purchase of the applicable Microsoft 365 licences or standalone Minecraft: Education Edition licence,' in contrast to Kano's original press announcement.

    The miserly buggers.

    Which is because this is basically a several-year-old Chinesium Android/Windows tablet, except the battery's removable and the speaker's on a pigtail.
