Rasberry Pi - $35 credit card size computer

 Rasberry Pi was launched today with a big bang.   There are already 44,161 followers on Twitter and  the launch made to headline news in CNN.com,  BBC and other news sites.

This credit card size little computer has been under development multiple years and is now available at $35 price point.

The price / performance ratio is pretty amazing  and since it is running Linux operating system it should be pretty straightforward to port / run  different ham radio applications on this tiny little computer.

I signed up on the waiting list - let's see how quickly the two distributors can ramp up. This initial batch of 10,000 units was sold in few minutes according to some websites.
