Raspberry Pi preorder!

Hey guys,

for those who don't know what the Raspberry Pi is: it's a miniature computer, capable of running Linux distros from an SD card. It features HDMI, USB, 3.5mm jack and a composite RCA for video.
Also, various pins for programming.

And all of that for a very low price.

Due to them being sold out faster than free money at a bank, I had to wait a few weeks to even get a mail confirming I can place an order!
So I basically ordered an order.

Anyway.
 

"I think I just crapped myself."


I was happy seeing that I had the chance to get one, so I instantly followed the link to get my hands on one. Sadly only one, as they're limited to 1 per customer.

Here we are then, now at the ordering page.

Sweet!

Wait.
Just a sec.

Something seems.. off..

OH FFFUUUUUUUUUU~

Oh well, its gonna be worth the wait. It's gonna be fun hacking around Linux (probably Ubuntu, hopefully Mint) to see what it can do.
