Great. Now they can sack their useless "team" and hire some real staff. Then, they can ditch all these toys and start making ... oh, hang on a sec, what else could they make apart from silly toys that pretend to "relive the 80s bedroom programmer years"?

Wow. I can see that money always goes to the right people then

BIG "/s"

I hope they succeed. The more consumer facing Linux centric hardware there is, the better.

They’re fools. They need to hand the reigns over to someone competent, or just dump the whole thing.

There's already tons of the latter, and a great majority of people carry one with them all the time, although most people aren't aware.

Sure, we can be pedantic and claim that just about every embedded device and its dog runs Linux, or whatever, but obviously that's not what I meant.

What Raspberry Pi (and related products) offer is an alternate desktop environment to Windows or macOS. In other words, they create direct consumer exposure to the Linux platform. The more such devices exists, the better it is for all of us. If that means making more "silly toys", as OP suggested, then so be it. There is absolutely nothing wrong with having fun.
