Raspberry Pi – a great way to learn the workings of software and computers

Raspberry Pi , a brilliantly named piece of electronic kit that allows a user to learn the underlying working of computers and software has been released in the UK.  A charitable foundation, the Raspberry Pi is targeted at the educational sector, allowing children (of all ages) to build a basic computer using a unit that has the same sort of electronic chips as Smart phones.

Software “Apps” can be written for the Raspberry Pi which encourage the users to learn about how software interacts with computers. By doing so, this should give children and adults alike a better understanding of how computers and software work.

I understand that the underlying operating system will be Linux, which is brilliant for learning.

Raspberry Pi – It’s meccano of the 21st Century! Brilliant! :)
