Bliss. When I started, you'd write your programme, send it - by sodding post - wait for the punch card operators to type it in. Then you would have to go through all the cards to make sure one had not *become* transposed, then submit & wait for the output. Could take a week. You iPad bods are lucky.........

OP said there are faster & cheaper boards available, which is undeniably true, the article specifically says it's about the community & the provision of support for school children (Kids are the spawn of goats) which makes the Pi a better tool for school children, due to the community support - for teaching programming.

The Arduino may well be cheaper; but the point's moot.
