Raspberry Pi Was Almost Owned by the BBC

Raspberry Pi was almost owned by the BBC

Last night at The Institute of Engineering and Technology, Raspberry Pi creator Eben Upton revealed that the BBC very nearly owned the credit-card sized Linux computer.

BBC Brand

And Upton also stated that he wanted them to own it. “We really wanted to put the BBC brand on this… we wanted to put the BBC brand on this so badly,” he announced during his talk.

Understandable really, considering the BBC brand would undoubtedly add weight to the product all over the world, but sadly it wasn’t meant to be.

“As a state-funded entity, it cannot go and muscle in,” he added, upon realising BBC couldn’t invest in the product.

But this hasn’t halted the progress of the Raspberry Pi one bit, with the device selling over 400,000 unites to date and hope to surpass the one million mark by the end of February 2013.
