Too bad that being an "open source" related raffle, it is not available to all the countries. Need to be more open I guess...

You can add a NexDock to this kit so that winner could use Raspberry Pi as a laptop!

Truly baffled this is not open to more countries... failed openness or legal caveats?

Interesting rule: Government employees and contractors are not eligible to enter.

This means ALL government employees at the state and federal level, right?

I really hoped that wasn't the case. :) Thanks for replying.

Good luck to all non-government employees and family members who enter!

I love it. I have some ideas and want to implement them soon. I am aware of the risks before starting the project. I am also doing a strategy to not have too many losses.

Good idea, bad implementation. I agree with the comments about including more countries. I am from Mexico and I see there isn't any Latin American country. I hope you consider our comments for coming contests.

Raspberry pi 3 is a huge improvement. Hopefully will be able to cleanly run my speech project I tried with the original pi. Pi was great. Pi2 was awesome and pi3 looks promising. That's left to be seen if it earns the fantastic tag.
