      I was at the Seneca College open source conference in the fall and saw it 
there. I'm going to go for it as well in a few months. Definitely a neat little 
board. Surprisingly the folks from Broadcom were involved in it!  

      I *THINK* these are the guys working on the OS:

equipment, a television, in their homes they can use for display.”"..."The 
Model A, which has also been reworked to include 256 megabytes of RAM, “will go

        It's Deja-Vu!! LOL...

        I was about to email the group with a link to the new Raspberry Pi
        single-board computer.

        At a mere $35 with plenty of power, it's ideal for hobbyists, and the
        parallels with the Commodore 64 are obvious.   However, someone at the
        Toronto Star has made the same observation:

        Pretty cool, didn't know the OS was developed here in Toronto at Seneca 
College.

        Here are the project links.  Any thoughts?   I'll probably buy one
        once the furor dies down.
