Yes. Since the Pi needs proprietary firmware that could be concealing
backdoors, or more likely just contain security vulnerabilities which
aren't fixable. The advantage of the Pi is that it's cheap and
relatively ubiquitous. Young people are probably far more likely to
encounter or have access to a Pi rather than an A13.
