Excellent Article on OLPC XO

  2007-01-10


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!
