Any plans for a TC port to Raspberry Pi?

There is a post  in the 'off topic' section (don't know why it is off topic) that talks about the Raspberry Pi but does not say whether there are plans for a TC port.

TC would be ideal for the Pi as I am sure due to the type of board and target audience of the Pi, there are due to be many 'power off' shutdowns with the  resulting file system corruption. Not an issue with TC.  It will also be interesting to see how the mainstream Linuxes cope with 256 Mb RAM.  Again, not an issue with TC.

Hi lemming
It is off topic because it concerns a port of TC that does not exist. The forum is X86 orientated.

If you run with a non-persistent home, there is still the issue of losing everything since you last ran a backup.

The PI is a hoax in my view.  I would have bought it if it were possible.

It's not a hoax. Now you can order it from Farnell. See details at

They say there are only 2000 of them available. Seems like not even worth trying to get one. I'm not saying they made the whole thing up. But when I tried to order it didn't work.
I'll see if some day it will get available to the broad public. But I'm sure by then we'll have lots of other more capable hardware from the competition.
