Anyone planning on buying a Raspberry Pi?

And will it be successful in getting kids to code?

Just read the article. It sounds quite exciting to me (whose first computer was a ZX Spectrum!), but whether it will catch today's kids' interest is another matter. As a parent I tend to find that technology is taken for granted rather than exciting any sense of enthusiam for learning how it works. smiley - sadface

I'm quite tempted to get one though (at that price) and see whether it can compete with a PS3 for attention-grabbing.

I'm waiting to be given the green light to place an order for one of these. K, my 9 year old, is really looking forward to messing about with it.
