    This is cool. The world needs more developers like Good-Guy-Notch and less like EA and Activision. EA would never give up the code to a multi-million dollar game to let people tinker with it for free.
    +1 to Notch for being awesome!

    More information about it is here: http://www.techspot.com/tag/raspberry pi/

    To sum it up in a sentence or two it's a $35 credit card sized computer running Linux on ARM-based hardware commonly found in tablets and smartphones. The primary focus of its existence is to reignite programming in schools and universities as well as those that like to tinker with computers at home.

    Considering its size and price it's rather outstanding. I haven't had the chance to explore it as much as I'd like but I've been very impressed with the one I have.

    I vaguely remember reading something about it in the past but seeing that it never even remotely interested me I'd forgotten about it.

    It is more interesting if you know how to program or if you're interested in a computer that has almost no affiliation with any major company (I.e. Microsoft, Apple etc).

    I've read this game title as MeinKampf a few times already. Maybe they should rename it?
