Look a little bit deeper under the skin.
My grandson won't have to share the family PC any more!
The thing that really differentiates the "Pi" from everything else in its hardware class is the user base and support. There have been about 400,000 Pis sold to date (last figure I saw), which compares with 300,000-odd Arduinos. Development is moving at a blistering pace. It's hard to believe they've been out for less than a year.
...Model B (volumes are actually, we think, a bit higher than we'd calculated; Farnell told us yesterday that they've shipped 429,000 so far, and I don't have current figures for RS, but they'll be only a little lower)
it appears the Raspberry Pi population is approaching 1 million units,
But that comparison still misses the point: Roku2 vs. Pi.
QuoteInteresting thread:http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=1016That thread is totally wrong: the Pi is to help people learn Linux and Roku to plave movies so they cannot possibly be related.Now, the cat is out of the bag.
