It’s a new computer that is really cheap (about £23). It’s been developed specifically to encourage young people to get interested in computers, especially programming.
It is expected to be available next month (December 2011). You can find out more here.
It will use Linux as the operating system – it will probably come with a version of Fedora. I think it’s a good idea to have a play with Linux. I’ll do a separate blog post on this later.
