After months of anticipation, the tiny $25 computer known as Raspberry Pi is available for purchase. Earlier today, the project Website featured a full-page static announcement of the long awaited news.The announcement actually stated that the project has been in existence for six years, although public information didn't emerge until last summer. These tiny computers are about the size of a USB stick and come with a 700MHz ARM11, 256 MB RAM, SD card slot, Ethernet port, 2 USB ports, and an an HDMI connector. Distribution developers and hobbyists are porting their favorite versions of Linux to the little machine. Fedora is just one.  Since its announcement folks have been clamoring for one of these little wonders. When priced at $35 for the Model B and $25 for the Model A, who can blame them? A few prototypes were sold at auction in January and the bids reached as high as $2700. Fortunately, you won't have to take out a small loan for yours. Only Model B is available during this initial run and sales are limited to one per customer. Batch orders will be taken in about a month. See the full announcement on the Raspberry Pi Website for ordering information.
