|The first production models of a
bare-bones computer design called Raspberry Pi, will now find its way as
prototype deployment for schoolchildren in the UK. It was basically
designed to serve as a learning gadget for children to be exposed to
computer programming and electronics. Since the early start of the
project, the Raspberry Pi has received a wide interest from developers
and hobbyists alike who will start receiving their kits on April 13.
The Pi uses an Arm processor, the same one used by many smartphones today. It runs on a flavor of Linux operating system and utilizes SD cards for memory storage. Networking capability is an option.
