That said, rpi3 is an even more amazing piece of hardware and a harbinger of the final death of the home PCs that are not gaming desktops or workstations (not that we really needed a harbinger at this point).

I got my B+ and about two months later, the 2 was released.

I should hurry up and buy the 3.
