Adafruit, better known for their hardware, are working on a WebIDE which you can use to program the Pi without having to set things up. You write the code in a browser and run it on the Pi using a web server hosted by the Pi. It sounds crazy but if it can make the Pi more approachable then perhaps it could turn out to be an educational powerhouse."

Raspberry Pi For The Rest Of Us

  • Twenty or so years ago Linux was a "mystery" for most tech and new to tech people. Now there are ready to run distros (even for the Raspberry Pi) you just copy to a SD card and power on.

    People need to get over this hang up. Programming a Pi in Linux is no more difficult (I'd say even easier) than setting up a Windows box.

      When you aim is to learn to program - in Python say - having to configure any OS is not a desirable first step. It isn't Linux is difficult, it's just not the object of the exercise and if you can avoid it then so much the better.
