Re: Name your next model of the Raspberry pi!

So, any ideas for a next model raspberry pi name?

Amongst the few, could be cranberry pi, blueberry pi, or chocolate-cream pie!

or perhaps some less healthy alternatives, like ham-burger, or hot-dog bun?

Lol!

Ah! GEORGE – I remember it well!  ICL1900 Mainframe – the size of a small house, punched card input, fanfold paper output (printer spacing controlled by punched paper tape loops), disk drives the size of washing machines, processing power of a digital watch! …

But I digress.  There is probably a bit of a clue in the developers – The Raspberry Pi Foundation. The Model A and B were named after the BBC Micro. Future models could, perhaps continue the alphabetic sequence, or maybe there will be a "Master" added to the mix.

Archimedes !!

the Acorn Archimedes was probably one of the machines so far ahead of its time that I suspect aliens had something to do with its concept...a Archimedes 540 could give any  x86 PC a run for its money right up to mid to late 90's

if only the PC market had gone down the ARM/RISC route, imagine where we would be now

Model C

It'll never happen, but I wish it'd be Seagoon, which gives you the letter C without being unoriginal... I love The Goons and eps of it and the Telegoons are on YouTube.  Model E should of course be Eccles. Those with no idea what I am talking about, should go to YouTube and look for the animated cartoon version of "What time is it, Eccles?"

Now off to check eBay for a cardboard, leather and string Raspi case... in case the fellow won't make lasered-acrylic cases without the logo.

I know this is the off topic forum, but does that mean the posts within a thread should be off topic? :lol:

I simply don't know if that is the case or not? :roll: :D

I think my next Raspberry Pi will be called Raspberry Pi number 3. :mrgreen:

It should be called the 'Model D' just for the spectator sport of watching all the "Why no Model C?" questions it would create.
