Whereas way back when you had a lot more formats, i.e Atari (st and 8bit), Commodore (Amiga and 8bit), Sinclair/Amstrad, MSX, Apple (Mac and 8bit) Tandy/Dragon data, Acorn (8bit and Archie) and the various lesser systems like tattung einstein, elan enterprise, memotech, oric, camputers lynx etc etc and ofcourse the peecee (including the atari and commodore badged ones)

I was looking at the Raspberry Pi just now and thinking something similar. I was also wondering how difficult would it be to create a proprietary operating system for something like the Pi that would give us something like a 'home' computer that we had back in the 80s (something like an updated A8, C64 or Spectrum), a system designed for games, but also for easy programming. Would it be so bad to have a text based operating system based on Basic again? The potential for re-igniting the bedroom coders would be enormous (in my opinion).
Edit: Just re-read your post and realised that you also proposed something like this. I for one would definitely be interested in trying something like this.
