Basically, this whole discussion is a bit pointless.

The point is that the RPi is a *coherent educational concept *as a whole 
- software, hardware, planning, resources - that has to some extend been 
taken over by hardcore hacker loudmouths who always seem to be 
disappointed. And it took over 4 years to realize the concept, not just 
the hardware, that was easy, and a choice made based on price and 
availability in 2009.
Get the big picture and get the success of the concept (over 2.000.000 
sold as per today) and you see why the BB, Odroids and the likes are by 
a long way not as successfull in the market.
I for one would be glad to see those hardcore complainers gone from the 
raspberry pi community. They are missing the point, any point..... 
basically clueless on what to do with it.

Well: there are no professionally written educational resources for BB 
and Odroid for example. All documentation is geared to professionals or 
Instead of using their capabilities to enhance eand contribute the RPi's 
eco, all they can do is moan about something better. It isn't! there's 
no plan behind it, there's hardly a concept, you're basically on your 
own and  the GPU alternatives often underperform compared to the RPi.

By all means, go ahead. But don't forget FPC is a viable compiler and 
Lazarus is a viable IDE for the Raspberry Pi. And the history of Pascal 
has a strong educational background.
And on the RPi it has about 2.000.000 times more potential to find 
Pascal converts then the measely sales figures from the alternatives ;)
