I agree. If their goal is to spread a very low cost Computer / Internet attachment device throughout the world, making sure there is one on every school desk or attached to every TV, telephone, broadband, etc .....Rasberry Pi is a wondeful vehicle with great possibilities.
Our's is still a niche market with unique requirements.

Interesting discussion. I do think the R-Pi group deserves accolades
for standing firm on features vs. cost and avoiding feature creep that
would adversely affect their target applications in education and
training. As engineers we know how strong the temptation can be!
But speaking as a former engineer-turned-business development guy, I'd
suggest that the best way to influence the design of future devices
based on the R-Pi platform would be to show the developers what those
features could do to enhance their educational mission. And since it is
clear that SDR is the future of radio, and that knowledge of radio in
all its myriad forms will be a critical success factor for those
developing the products of the future, this ought to not be too difficult.
