I am the proud owner of a first-batch Raspberry Pi.

I bought it primarily to satisfy my geekiness and to include in an existing in-car project, but I am also seeing quite what the hell they think they are doing aiming it at schools.  Two-and-a-bit months after the "launch" it arrived on my doorstep and had a variety of minor problems with it, so much that I haven't got to the point where I'd feel happy putting it into a project where I intended to just leave it running, and hopefully these will be ironed out before they shove this into schools that aren't buying what they expect.

Here's my particular Pi: 

I also host a mirror for a Raspberry-Pi aimed port of Slackware (based on ARMSlack).  You can find the installation image here: www.ledow.org.uk/raspberrypi
