#1  What do you imagine the wait time is going to be for ordering a RaspberryPi as of today ?
#2  What do you imagine will happen to the evolution of the RaspberryPi over the next year ?
    Be easier to obtain ?  harder ?  cheaper ?  more expensive ?   when will it be possible to order 100 at a time ?

I don't know, but would reckon that it will take a while to fill the 100k back order that they claim.

I suspect you could have an order for 100 on about a months delivery in about 6 months time.
As to evolution of it as a device, I don't know if it will change much. If it did they would need to aim at a different market than the education market, and then a whole heap different set of criteria come into play.

IMHO there is a more interesting observation: when the Pi foundation and their partners can make a Linux-capable PCB for ~ $40, they can't be the only ones. And the hype around the Pi has shown that there is a marked demand for such a device. Hence: someone will make and sell such products, even if the Pi is not 100% successful (but my guess it that it will be).

Check this product from Olimex (available early May): http://www.olimex.com/dev/oli_left.htm

Speaking of Raspberry Pi, the Gambas developers are working on porting
Gambas to Raspberry Pi. Evidently it is coming along.

Gambas is pretty much Visual Basic 6 for linux. Very nice.

As a nonprofit, that presumably is making as little as one possibly can and still 'stay in business' per unit sold, there won't be competition in the foreseeable future, since it is not a business in the regular sense of the word.  You can't compete with a zero margin 'business'.

What is TBD is if the pi can be used in conventional for-profit products, both from a "licensing" standpoint (the Pi foundation is for educational ends, not supplying entrepreneurs) and real-world biz concerns of supply stability/longevity, FCC compliance, on and on.

An "embedded Pi" or "industrial Pi" that is electrically and toolchain compatible for $99 that IS fine for business use on all fronts makes this road viable for everyone.  We shall see.
