Seems like a guy made a cheap computer (which is nice for kids ect) but trying to put this spin on it like its going to help kids learn the fundimentals of computing just seems like a marketing ploy / sellable news.
This is a fairly revisionist take on it. That (education) was *always* the stated aim of the project from the very beginning, the fact that the geek world at large latched onto it as a cheap way to run they media centers/whatever is what made it news and isn't really the foundation's fault (other than that they designed a really nice device).

I would suggest doing a bit more reading before shooting off based on a few, no doubt mis-construed, quotes in a typically terrible article on news.com.au.

I'm one in that geek world! I ordered mine on the weekend (although I have no clue when it will actually ship). The plan is to run it as a second XBMC box for the bedroom and if it works out well I maybe well buy a few more and set then up for a few family and friends.

I'll probably end up tinkering a bit too and look at setting up discrete appliances each with their own mini computer . At the price point (and power consumption) its a very attractive option...

Even simple things like USB camera + Pi = cheap IP Camera. Add a speaker and mic and it's an intercom or video conferencing rig. So many possibilities !!

Hmm to order now or... no doubt the price is just going to keep going up given the crazy demand - but so is the lead time.

Also 52,000 orders is about $2million worth of raspberry pi

Are there any group buys going on for these?

Or is every one just ordering from element14.

I notice Element still has the old prices. I'm not complaining though but if you want it, you should get in before they revise it.

I did the same (a bit over a week ago)... They called a few days later and said I could only have one

Oh well - I often fail to finish projects, so one at a time is probably for the best.
