Recently Raspberry Pi celebrated an impressive milestone. It has now sold over 30 million units since the 2012 release of the Raspberry Pi B. Co-founder Eben Upton stated, Twitter, that they sold their thirty-millionth unit sometime last week.

A number of people have likened this achievement to the Guinness Book of World Records entry for the Commodore 64. The C64 earned the title for best selling single-model computer by selling roughly the same numbers in twelve years. It’s not exactly a like for like comparison since the Pi has had numerous iterations. Either way congratulations to Pi as we’ve seen it used for many creative and educational purposes. There are moments when they seem like they can do anything.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
