I finally managed to buy a raspberry pi.
Things have improved greatly with the software since I messed around with an alpha board 1 year and 7 months ago. Pygame is even on the desktop! Pretty cool :) I just wish they'd been in contact with the project so we could have made the experience better. Tried to reach out a few times with no luck.
But anyway... managed to get one finally. *happy dance*
Improvements to the sound, OpenGL ES, camera, movie, python 3 version, are amongst
some of the things I see that can be improved so far.
