Excellent Article on OLPC XO


Linux Today has an excellent article on the One Laptop Per Child initiatives XO laptop.

While the technology is innovative and revolutionary, my concern has always been that the $100+ cost of the laptop would be better spent on more traditional educational materials. However, this article begins to shed light on how OLPC is addressing that: this laptop is designed to replace text books, paper, pencils, and blackboards in a renewable way.

I can’t wait to get my hands on an XO someday!  Its exactly what the public school I work at needs for the vast majority of its computer usage!
