Raspberry Pi: Computer on a stick for only $25 | Crave – CNET

Raspberry Pi: Computer on a stick for only $25 | Crave – CNET.

A computer on a stick for $25?  This link was forwarded to me from an old friend who is much more on the up-and-up about computer hardware and new tools.

Combine inexpensive (although fragile?) hardware and some open-source software and watch it take off.  I can’t wait to see what kind of competition this will bring to the personal computer market.  With so many Web2.0 tools out there today, most users don’t actually need a lightening-fast processor and gigabytes of hard drive space.  Do less with more.

Check out raspberrypi.org for more information about the brilliant non-profit that’s heading up this project.
