There are two good news:

The first series of boards is in production, it is expected to be finished on February 20th, see http://www.raspberrypi.org/archives/615.

At http://dmkenr5gtnd8f.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/BCM2835-ARM-Peripherals.pdf Broadcom has published an abbreviated datasheet of the SoC, this could ease the development of software, including a Lazarus port.

Someone managed to get one!? If you managed to turn us over some software written in Lazarus?!
Win10, Ubuntu and Mac
Lazarus: 2.1.0
FPC: 3.3.1

10k units sold in just few hours, with limit of just 1 unit per person! Farnel had web site access problems when openings started. RaspberryPi will indeed be bigger then Arduino.

Following the launch of Raspberry Pi Board B this morning, we've seen incredible levels of interest. Our initial stock has—amazingly—already sold out!

XBMC media center has already been ported and we can watch full 1080p on HDMI:

It was already sold out. I'm now waiting till Farnell gets new stock (and see the value of their bundled offerings (with wifi dongles, flash cards etc)). Then I'll get my boss to order one :-)

Cant wait till Raspberry Pi runs Free Pascal compiled code

Euh... none!

But you can download different SD card images: http://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads

I prefer Debian distribution for arm. I ordered a B model and vey  curious to install a Debian image and ofcourse to install FreePascal/Lazarus onto this platform.
Here is the link for Debian arm distribution.

This is from Wiki:
Ubuntu was initially planned to be the default distribution, but due to issues with newer releases of Ubuntu and the ARM processor used in the Raspberry Pi, Ubuntu cannot commit to support Raspberry Pi at this time.
Eben says (regarding default distribution): "Either Ubuntu or Fedora; the main point in Fedora’s favour is their ongoing support for ARMv6 architectures."

I just updated the minimal Free Pascal and fpGUI ARM distro on this page:
  http://www.turbocontrol.com/easyfpgui.htm

That might just be the easiest way to try Free Pascal and a GUI program on the Raspberry Pi, which I hope to do as soon as a friend gets delivery on one.

For those who missed it, here are all dependencies needed to make your first Raspberry PI gui application (including info about Raspberry PI emulator for Windows if you don't have real hardware yet):
