The Raspberry Pi single-board open-source Linux computer, designed to bring programming back to home and school, has started production.

After a detour to discuss why the computer couldn't be built in the UK, one of the comments expressed it well

Back at Raspberry Pi. I'm hugely in favour of it, but have a reservation that it's us 40-something trying to capture our lost youth. I agree that ICT is rubbish, and that it is better classed as office skills. It is a very boring course, but computing science is perhaps the new Latin, something niche and specialist. 

This brings us back to the "post-PC" approach the device itself is irrelevant.
