    Yes, $25 (model A) & $35 (model B), but only model B is being released right now for "35 U.S. dollars = 22.359931 British pounds", plus Postage makes about, Hmmm, £25 or there about.

    I'm on a winning arguments streak this week. Anyone else??

    Hehe,

    Nice one. Not bad price. Atmel SAM7 dev board, which is my embedded device of choice for projects
    is much, much more. I wish i had free time to try the Pi, though.

    Rig control and digital modes can be done using fl-digi

    Just got a 512MB board. Took a while to get it to see the extra mem though, apt-get uprade / update did it after a load of tries. What software do you lot use? I found fldigi was really struggling on PSK31, I'm looking for something to receive WFAX - any favorites?

    I have one, bought it from adafruit.com I also got a BeagleBone Black at the same time. Also 3 Arduino Unos revision 3. Esplora, mini. With a Leonardo on the way. Besides digital ham stuff, I'm working, just thinking so far, a mecha arm with rgb leds and arduino running it. Got a nice 1.8 inch tft 18-bit screen and a 2.x touch screen. Lots of wire, leds, etc. Costume ? Yeah, I go to science fiction conventions.

    Oh, I bought some of this stuff at my local radio shack.

    I had a Raspberry Pi for about a hour and forty five minutes using it out in the kitchen. Apparently my XYL was a bit mad at me because I wasn't being attentive to her. She asked me if I wanted Pie Ala Mode and I said, "Sure!" She sliced off a large piece of Vanilla Ice Cream and before I knew it ... she placed it on my Raspberry Pi! So much for playing with new computer items out in the kitchen.
