and it's out.
I kept wanting to buy a fanless SDD netbook to use as media computer but with this thing that sounds like money down the toilet. I think I'll get one.

I2S pins were removed from the final PCB version, also all of the RPi forum posts related to the subject seem to be gone (google still finds something).

However, you could use HDMI to output audio from RPi in digital format.

The online posts (local cloub/hackerspace email lists) I see say the first 10k are sold, and others will be built and sold "traditionally" through distributors. An aquaintance ordered one from a distributor, and got a ship date of May something. There's a few gory details on the 'temporary' site:

The Raspberry Pi Launch

At least it's not vaporware, and they should be readily available to meet demand in a few months.

We did some embedded development on ARM Xscale systems in university, about 6 years back. Even then, with speeds and RAM significantly lower than this it was possible and even easy to use them for quite powerful tasks. Multichannel audio is definitely not an issue here. It's only a matter of getting it out of the device, for which it seems to have enough options. In the worst case scenario, one would need to program the GPIO pins to get what he needs out, in digital form.

What I wonder is if the default 2-chan audio out is at all usable.

The Z80 was the 1st µProcessor i did assembly on, i got my start with System/360 assembler, my favorite of the more than a dozen i learned was 6809.

Peeps are surprised at the demand for these:
Distributors reel from Mad Wednesday rush for $35 Pi
I wonder how many will sell once they catch up with demand.

Well, the folks behind the project have said they want one to be given to every schoolchild. That's quite a lot just in the UK.
