BTW - this is hardly RPi's fault, isn't it? Your right, it isn't the RPi's fault, although would it kill them to just include an 8gb flash chip on the device Re flash on the device - That's completely different discussion. What needs to be onboard is an endless talk - there are a few of those threads on raspberry.org . Personally, I am fine with the microSD card.
