Quite right, but didn't they say the same of the OLPC project? AFAIK those are almost ready to go, albeit not with the OS we'd like...
However, having this on LQ instead of some obscure backwater gives it a much greater audience and may spark contributions from the Linux community that really help that project mature and reach critical mass. Note: I'm not affiliated, but certainly interested!
The BBC gave it some coverage in their bulletin at 6 PM today, as the Pi was launched this morning. The first batch is sold out, but 2 major distributors are now onboard (s'cuse the pun ) and this allows the project to order in large(r) volumes.
Newark is the USA distributor and there are no restrictions. I have received my first Rpi and another order is on it's way via USPS. Only downside is the USPS system is very slowwww. Newark order turn around was a few days after placement and payment.
