While there is still an air of mystery, the raspberry pi foundation seem to have named the 29th February as their launch date. The website recently was updated with the post:
“The Raspberry Pi Foundation will be making a big (and very positive) announcement that just might interest you at 0600h GMT on Wednesday 29 February 2012. Come to www.raspberrypi.org to find out what’s going on.”
Liz Upton (Raspberry Pi web operations guru) has refused to comment any further citing “arcane contractual reasons”.
We at R_Pi Audio fully believe this will be the launch. Set your alarms.
