In 2022 it has been difficult if not impossible to buy a Raspberry Pi 4 (or even 3) at RRP. My supplier is showing a lead time of 30/10/2023
Most of the reasons are well-known - global chip shortage, etc. Some reasons are less-well known or speculative. But they point to a turbulent company and uncertain future as far as hobbyist customers are concerned.
All good things must come to an end, perhaps Pi4 is the final Raspberry Pi platform with large Kodi userbase. If a Raspberry Pi 5 launches in this enviroment, and it is impossible to buy, I cannot imagine developers wasting time to support it when the future is so uncertain.
What are your thoughts on the future of Raspberry Pi as a Kodi/LibreElec platform?
