With the new milestone hit, the bare bones do-it-yourself mini computer has made the Foundation the best-selling UK computer maker ever.
Aimed originally at schools and students who were learning to program, the board has clearly become a minor hit outside of the educational world.
The mini computer sells for just $35 and there are plenty of operating systems around that can be easily run on the computer with just an SD card. The company also just announced a second-generation model with more RAM and a better processor that will be able to run a variant of Windows 10.
Just confirmed the big news we've all been waiting for: we've now sold more than 5 million Raspberry Pis.-- Raspberry Pi (@Raspberry_Pi) February 17, 2015
