'[OT] I am waiting to order a RaspberryPi'
#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).

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.
