$25 Linux PC 'Raspberry Pi' to Go in Production Early Next Year

Much awaited credit card size $25 computer Raspberry Pi is about to go in production early next year. First run beta devices are currently being tested. If all goes well, you will be able to purchase it in January.

If you don't know, Raspberry Pi can plug into your TV and a keyboard. It can be used for many of the things your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. The device will come with an ARM processor, a USB hub, an HDMI out, a 3.5mm jack and will support Linux out of the box.

Debian, Fedora and ArchLinux will be supported from the start and more distributions will be added later on.

The Raspberry Pi is one little Board - Computer that I am really looking forward to!:) I would love to experiment with different light weight Linux Distros on it. It has Video Outputs for TV's (Composite Video or RF, not sure) and HDMI too. And since it already has been tested with Fedora Linux. I would be right at home, setting up a PC or maybe a Media - TV Watching PC with the Raspberry Pi!:)
