Hi Paul,

First, if I didn't say thank you last time for your response, thank you!

I just came across the Raspberry Pi project:


Because so much of the system is integrated, it might be less easy to
understand, but at that price point it's intriguing to consider having
a(nother) platform with that kind of ubiquity that would be a good
alternative host.

Have you seen the hardware or the project yet? What are your thoughts?

Thanks again,
