I find it interesting that $100 laptops and stripped down versions of software is supposed to solve the world's problems of poverty and hunger...
when they strip out all the stuff that makes it useful, all that will be left are the bugs/security holes
OLPC is a nice project to improve the education of African children, I support it with no reservation.
M$'s project is another issue which I don't think I know the whole truth yet.
One of our Pastors just got back from Africa - she showed us pics. I think they'd rather have food than laptops....
No kidding. They need $1,000 tractors more than $100 computers.
lol, they need helps at all kinds of different levels, can't treat the whole society as a whole.
Thats still $2 more expensive than Vista is in China.
true, if you assume all ppl there will not consider a legal product when its price is at acceptable level, $199 for Americans is like $1600 for them, while $3 for Americans is like $25 for them, I am sure most ppl (even in US, UK, etc) won't consider a copy of OS at $1600, but they sure like a legal copy at $25.
osx for free
i remember ooo probably 7-8 months ago Steve offered to install OSX on all of those laptops for no charge at all. I believe there was some argument about it being a proprietary OS and that they were going to stick with Red Hat or something. i think its kind of rediculous that they would not want a mainstream OS on those laptops. Granted linux is pretty stable, but OSX is used by 5% of the population (or whatever) Red Hat, less than 1%.
OLPC is a small laptop with everything built in. I don't think SJ was offering hardware, and its hard to imagine OSX would fit in a laptop as cheap as those, take a look
*cough* iBook G3 */cough*
lol, iBooks G3 is much bigger than this, with larger HDD, RAM, AFAIK, the olpc is using a flash drive with several GBs space as HDD.
You do remember the original clamshell, right?
I only saw it, never really touched it. yes, I know the colorful design looks similar.
More about the specifications...
ok, take a look at http://www.laptop.org/en/laptop/hardware/specs.shtml
