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.

There are moments when they seem like they can do anything.
