    Glade to here that Horizon Lanka back in action again. I think, you or someone from Horizon Lanka call me regarding RaspberryPi. In addition to RaspberryPi, there are many SoCs available now and some of them are better than RaspberryPi. If you are thinking of cost effective basic desktop solution, do not go for RaspberryPi (unless you want to do some research and development with it).
    I can donate one,If you want to test and play around with RaspberryPi
    You can contact me from hasloku[at]yahoo.co.uk (and hope you have my no)for more information.

    I didnt know Horizon was ceased, It is really a great pleasure to see that you are resuming your activities back as I believe Horizon is a charismatic implementation of IT/English among rural area students. You have shown how to do the right thing in right way compared to many so called IT promotion projects where most of them are just white elephants and wastage of public money. Wish you all good luck.
