Raspberry Pi passes 10m sales mark @Raspberry_Pi #piday #raspberrypi
In case you missed it, earlier this week Raspberry Pi hit an exciting milestone, congrats! Via BBC News.
The Raspberry Pi has sold 10 million units – continuing its success as the most popular British computer ever.
The computer, about the same size as a credit card, was first released in 2012 and is widely used as an educational tool for programming.
However, it can also be used for many practical purposes such as streaming music to several devices in a house.
A new starter kit for Raspberry Pi, including a keyboard and mouse, has been released to celebrate the success.
The kit also includes an SD storage card, official case, power supply, HDMI cable, mouse, keyboard and guidebook – it costs £99 plus VAT and will be available in the coming weeks.
