Exactly my thinking. These will sell by the million in India and every bob will be fluent in BBC Basic. Actually the Bobs will just nick the design and the software and save themselves £20.

Fair play to the people behind this though. A good austerity device that might inspire a few kids to learn programming.

It can't run Windows 8, .NET 4 or MS Office, so on that basis, I'm out.
