    I'll probably get a few of these once they become a little more easily available, if possible. Looks like it could be a lot of fun. :)

    Lately I've been getting a lot of web traffic from their forums discussing possible case designs. I mean a lot of traffic so there must be some significant interest in this little device. It's got my gears turning.

    bit-tech, i know you like anything that focuses on the UK, but raspberry pi a product for educational purposes EVERYWHERE, not just the UK. that's why they refer to the price in USD, not GBP. The developers for rp are from the UK and the charity money from it goes to UK schools.

    Can't wait to see the first watercooled version, great with wee tubes and a tiny pump. Doesn't need it but what the hell ;)

    If this could run Onlive/Gaikai.. do they run on LINUX yet?

    Man. 720p media playback, the latest gaming titles, a full browser.. and all in a tiny form factor for £35. Is it just me or is this a game changer?

    Will be purchasing one of these for a low power system to use as a home server, plus media player. Can't wait...

    Linux yes, but it's the ARM version. So it needs ARM version of the apps. Check the forums, there is a list of supported Linux distros (Ubuntu is not supported).

    XBMC works :

    Thinking of modding it into at Patriot Box Office, great looking little case and I can hopefully mode its current power supply to power this.
