Already working on designs for a fullcover waterblock for it ;)

And even if it does run linux, well, it runs... linux.
If you want to get people coding, give them something they can write for in, say, Visual Studio.

Shame they didn't do a faster version - not just for performance benefits but the old cpu doesn't support many of the features of newer chips for which most software is now designed making it harder to port that software to a rasberri (e.g. flash).

Farnel never fails :)
Jake, what it is saying is that its graphics processing is twice faster than iPhone 4S, which has one of the fastest SoC in terms of graphics. RPi's CPU unfortunately will be very weak, not comparable to those modern SoC's out there.

Linux has lot's of nice devel tools.

Well, no, Linux has lots of devel tools. Most of them are very far from nice. Most of the "devel tools" on Linux are indistinguishable from a text editor (although, to be fair, quite a lot of linux is indistinguishable from a text editor...)
Much as people like to promote it as such, the idea that linux is in any way friendly or easy to get into as a brand-new software engineer is absolute fantasy.
