It was? That is _not_ how I read it.
I suggested trying to get Oberon and/or A2 running on the Raspberry Pi.
This is not Chinese. It is designed by a British non-profit foundation
and manufactured in Wales. The CPU architecture is also
British-designed, albeit by someone now working for an American
company, which also makes the RPi SoC.
And not _instead_ of anything. _As well as_.

I'm in Czechia and I bought my last RasPi locally. Intra-EU trade is
unlikely to suffer at the tiny hands of Little Donny.
