I prefer Arduino for robotics because it is easier to interface with external hardware. The Raspberry Pi does not really add much functionality that you would want for basic robotics, but is does add a lot more complexity.

It won't work with the Arduino DTMF shield lesson, and you would have to rewrite all of the code for all of the examples to work with Raspberry Pi.
