    It shows how the Raspberry Pi foundation is differenciating the RPi from other offerings. Nice one. Works well and I am sure given the community it will be filling up soon.

    It wasn't, until the Foundation posted the news on their website - now it's enjoying the traffic equivalent of a DDoS attack as every Pi owner in world tries it out. Give it a few days, it'll be reet.

    I too may jump on the bandwagon, but I will probably wait for a more powerful version to be released first.

    Possible true, but this again is yet another reason why the Raspberry Pi and anything associated with it has been underestimated, anyone with ANY business sense would have seen these problems way before this.

    At least one thing, this Raspberry Pi release has made me look at other superior products on the market, even if they cost more.

    Theres hardly any point for a charity organisation to be able to handle that many requests when in a couple of days time it will be fine. It would just be a waste of money.
