“The Commodore 64 had, until recently, the distinction of being the third most popular general purpose computing platform,” Eben Upton told a crowd at the fifth birthday party. “That’s what I’m here to celebrate,” he said, “we are now the third most popular general purpose computing platform after the Mac and PC.”

The Pi is a pretty fascinating machine, and while I don’t think that sales should be the measure of success, it is an impressive statement of the size of the hobbyist computer community.

The comments on this article are hilarious, vintage 8-bit computer fans fighting Pi fans to the death.
