The reasoning seem to be based on assumtion that are non-obvious to
me.  The first part "Requires non-free blob to boot" seem quite
similar to any PC with a non-free BIOS, which I assume is not making
any PC hardware unsuitable, and "and pretty weak when using Debian -
Raspbian is not Debian" seem irrelevant (and fixable) if it have
enough performance to do the job it need to do.  This I wonder where
the assumtions/requirements that make it unsuitable have been

According to <URL: http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/5016 > there
are 1.75 million sold Raspberry Pi units.  It seem to me like a
valuable resource we should tap into. :)
