“Linux was chosen for Raspberry Pi with a purpose”

3023
 

Q. How do you see India as a market for Raspberry Pi?
A. India is a really important market for a device like Raspberry Pi. Indians have recently shown a lot of interest in low-cost computing devices and Raspberry Pi can be a great alternative for those who want to have a good computing device. Not only in India, but in all the developing nations where computing amongst students is still to be made popular. We have kept such a low price-point only to make the device popular amongst the students and to encourage programming amongst them. I am sure Indian students will like the product.

Q. Do you plan to join hands with the Indian government to take the product to schools?
A. We have not gone ahead to discuss this so far. But the Raspberry Pi Foundation would not mind if the government in India finds our device exciting enough to give it to their students. We are open to work on such lines.
