Raspberry Pi sales surpass one million units | BGR # What do they mean, “minicomputer” ???

The numbers are in and the $35 Raspberry Pi Linux PC is a success. After pre-orders sold out in less than 24 hours, the credit card-sized computer faced a number manufacturing hiccups and distribution problems. In April, the first batch of Raspberry Pis finally arrived at distributors and begun to ship worldwide. The company announced this week that one of its two distributors, Premier Farnell, has sold more than half a million units.

    Brilliant news :-). Thinking about the Pi and other hobbyist / embedded / I/O-focussed systems such as the Arduino, I wonder whether “SoM” (system-on-a-miniboard, which would fit with the system-on-a-chip “SoC” monicker that ARM embedders are fond of) might take off?

    Also, I admit I’m not quite old enough to have thought about the PDP-8, when seeing “minicomputer” used. The PDP-11, on the other hand… ;-).
