Raspberry Pi

Raspberry Pi Foundation, a British computer brand responsible for creating and manufacturing the famous controller that bears its name, has just unveiled its sales history where we find that, in these years, they have already been able to sell a whopping of 12,5 million devices, something that literally places this small computer as the third best-selling device in the history of computers, just behind other companies such as Windows and Mac.

Thanks to these sales figures, Raspberry Pi would have managed to overtake other major brands such as Commodore 64, a very popular device in the 80s and 90s. As a detail, tell you that the company has also wanted to disseminate sales data by models where, without undoubtedly, highlights the sales harvested by the Raspberry Pi 3B, a model that accounts for 30% of the sales history harvested by all the company's products launched on the market.

Raspberry Pi has sold a whopping 12,5 million units since it hit the market.

As it appears in the official statement released by Rasbperry Pi Foundation:

Third place might sound like a bronze medal, but given the astronomical sales of Apple's Windows PCs and Macintoshs, it's an incredible achievement.

Remind you that the Raspberry Pi Foundation is in charge of just producing the 'hardware'of the famous device while all the'software'used in this famous board has a Linux base. This means that the software used is completely free and can be customized, something that the community behind the success of this board has liked a lot since Lets do 'stuff'that can't be done with other devices.
