That's what I think whenever I see the posts "Raspberry Pi is teh aw3s0m3". Or when I look at the frequent Slashdot articles on it, which are very similar.

The Foundation as always been pretty clear about what they want: A cheap SoC that anyone can use -- which people tend to notice -- and materials focused around education and the Python programming language and tools like PyGame --- but that second part people tend to overlook.

The device can do more, certainly. And people have done quite a lot with it.

It is a cool little device, no question about that. But relative to what most people have available it is slow and clunky.

The Foundation wanted people to do cool stuff with it, but that is beyond their initial goals.

If you have a computer system and you can install PyGame on it... well then, you've got it and that's it. That's all the device was designed for.
