[erlang-questions] Raspberry-Pi

Raspberry-pi specs are at: http://elinux.org/Rpi_Hardware

Essentially
- 700MHz ARM11
- 256MBytes RAM
- 10/100 Ethernet
- SD memory card

cost about 27 EUR (under 1/3rd the price of that MMnet1002)

I think Raspberry-Pi (R-Pi) is relevant to Erlang because:
1. It appears that there is a *lot* of educational interest in using R-Pi
to teach programming, so having Erlang available makes a lot of sense (to
me)
2. it might be a cheap, portable server for development 'on-the-go' for
folks doing laptop development, without VM-infrastructure,
3. it might be very compact, cheap, approach to guaranteed-working
development machines, for folks running Erlang training courses, (at that
price, it might be included in the course fees)
4. it's so small and cheap, I could post a 'working server', or even a
small cluster, to a client for testing, etc.
