66: Mmm. Pi.
10 March 2022
We look back at our favorite moments from the last ten years of the Raspberry Pi, why you might want to start considering one, and where we want to see the platform evolve.
- 10 years of Raspberry Pi - YouTube — Almost exactly ten years ago today, thousands of you set your alarms, and woke on leap-day morning to discover that we’d started selling Raspberry Pi computers. By the time our all-volunteer team gathered in the pub that evening for celebratory drinks, our licensees Farnell and RS Components had taken over 100,000 orders (despite struggling to keep their websites online under the load); we had (briefly) out-trended Lady Gaga; and Raspberry Pi was on the road to becoming a little larger than we’d planned.
- Too expensive to run in the UK now?! — My server uses 136 watts, and will costs £1.80 a day to run from June when the price increases kick in costing £54 a month. I’m starting to think maybe it’s not worth it anymore having it run all the time! Is anyone else re-thinking their home servers given the current cost situation?

- The future of computers is only $4 away, with Raspberry Pi CEO Eben Upton — TodayToday I’m talking to Eben Upton, the CEO of Raspberry Pi, a fascinating company that makes beloved tiny hackable computers that are extremely inexpensive: the cheapest Raspberry Pi is just $4, the most popular model is about $35, and the most expensive model that comes with a keyboard is $70. They run Linux, and you can do just about anything with them: people build robots, they learn to code, they run media servers.
