The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It’s a capable little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. We want to see it being used by kids all over the world to learn programming.
We recommend Debian as our default distribution. It’s straightforward to replace the root partition on the SD card with another ARM Linux[[OS]] distro if you want to use something else (there are several available on our downloads page). The OS is stored on the SD card.
By default, we’ll be supporting Python as the educational language.
A version of Android can be found in the forum. It is not presently stable enough for everyday use, however work is continuing on it.
