I think we can safely say that there'll be plenty more made... I missed out too, but I'm happy to wait for a little while until things have stabilised.

I'm delighted to be honest that it's gathered this much momentum for them!

You might be right...

Some people have even said that children aren't that interested in programming and for a reason, they aren't bothered with what's underneath or inside a machine they just want to use it and play. Time will tell...

Playing devils advocate, the far east would buy them to clone/put a case on it / Stick Android on it and get some anime characters kicking ass and sell it back as Air Jordan's. Bling.

Still bought one tho

Actually, no..
Apparently the Raspberry Pi folks are mad at the distributors..
They apparently tried and tried to warn them about the demand, and the distributors either didn't listen or didn't believe them...

Personally, I'll wait for better availability later... ;-)

That's a bit of a sweeping assumption - programming is taught so little and so poorly below BA-level college classes that it's difficult to say whether kids actually aren't interested or simply have never had a latent interest properly fed. It's like saying kids aren't interested in reading when all you've got is a shelf full of accounting manuals.
