From the very beginning the Raspberry Pi was developed to teach programming language at an affordable price point. The community has made projects ranging from to full blown desktop computers to portable mame emulators. Its so popular several educational establishments are using them in classrooms and even kids are learning to program! 🙂 There has never been a better way to enjoy personal projects and introduce technology to a younger and eager generation. Millions of these micro computers have shipped and with a motivated community, expect more awesome development to follow. Its gotten so much attention in fact, that nasty Malware infesting lowlifes want in!!
The Malware distributors are currently unknown and had plans to bundle their disgusting practices to the Raspberry Pi Foundation. Luckily the Raspberry Pi Foundation has turned down their request to ship their mini-computers with preinstalled malware. Keep in mind this is a charitable organization and most other corporations would have been glad to receive the money. Kudos to them to keeping their work clean and providing everyone with no built in malware out the box. Raspberry Pi has tweeted a screenshot from an email they received from Linda (business officer) install an executable file with the offer per install.
Amazing. This person seems to be very sincerely offering us money to install malware on your machines. pic.twitter.com/1soL0MIc5Z
