Issue 195 (March 2015) - Raspberry Pi 2
The global phenomena that is the Raspberry Pi enters
its next phase and is taking Linux with it, not so much
kicking and screaming, but more skipping merrily
through classrooms, workshops and coding clubs around the
world. A charitable venture that was originally envisioned to
produce a few thousand Pis has become an educational
gateway to Linux for literally millions of new users. Crucially not
any old users but a new generation of programmers,
developers, system admins, kernel contributors, bug hunters
and security experts. All open-eyed and open-minded to the
open source way.
Boys and girls as young as seven are coding with Linux. I can't
emphasise how vital this is, as it has been noted that the age of
developers maintaining crucial elements of the Linux world are
ageing. We jokingly call them greybeards, but unless a new
generation comes along to maintain those distros the open
source world is going to find itself in trouble.
That’s why it’s amazing news an all-new Raspberry Pi is on its
way. We’ve got complete in-depth coverage on the Pi, with a report
on the launch event. We’ll of course have more coverage over the
year, so stick with us or even save yourself some money and
