I have mixed feelings about programming learning courses which are proposed currently in schools around the world; I'm thinking specifically about RaspberryPi as a way to get kids involved in computer programming - and I don't fully get it.

When I was younger I was indeed using "not really powerful devices" to tech myself programming them - things like Commodre64 or Amiga500 - you know, 64kB or 0.5MB of RAM, 1-7MHz CPU - where in most cases programs directly flipped bits in gfx chipsets in order to get a pixel drawn on the screen.

But it was all I had - therefore I had to use it. If I has access to some more "interesting" hardware (PC+Dos/Windows wasn't that more interesting from programmer's perspective), like some Unix machine or sth with networking capabilities, I'd be using that.

So, I cannot imagine what's the advantage of letting kids program a Raspberry Pi over letting them program regular PCs.  You cannot break more a PC than RespebrryPi by programming. Regular PCs also have all necessary inetrfaces, and as these learning courses are aimed at mostly kids in developed countries, there are regular PCs in schools and at homes anyway?
