The pocket-sized Raspberry Pi has gone to become the third best-selling computer of all time, edging out the Commodore 64 in the all-time rankings. Over 12.5 million DIY boards have been shifted in the last five years.
The developers of this multi-purpose computer have consistently improved the kit since the first board was launched back in 2012. A total of eight different variations have been released since then, with tweaks made to the specs and on-board capabilities.
Although it will be almost impossible for the Pi to close the gap to the PC or Mac, the company’s latest model, the Raspberry Pi Zero W is reported to have sold a staggering 100,000 units during its first four days on sale.
