Currently (at least) you can only buy a new Raspberry Pi from one of the
two approved suppliers.
From the FAQ (http://www.raspberrypi.org/faqs):
"Where can I buy one?
You can buy the Raspberry Pi through Premier Farnell/Element 14
(http://www.farnell.com/) and RS Components (http://pi.rsdelivers.com/).
Both distributors sell all over the world."
Having said that, quite a few people are reporting long delivery times
from RS, so I'd recommend Element 14.
Does anybody run the dedicated debian port for it and also a chrooted
environment with the one of the armel or armhf ports ?
I run the "Raspian" Wheezy armhf port, but not in a chroot. armel on the
Raspberry Pi is the standard Debian one, with a custom kernel and a few
extra bits of software supplied.
It also might be worth you having a quick look through the forums
(http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3) to see what successes and problems
people have encountered (including the Français forum).
