    That OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) is finally unveiled...In prototype form...Well, at least it gives you an idea of what its gonna look like.

    Its small, it looks like something designed by Fisher-Price, and its running Fedora Core 5 (Linux)

    Hi F2B,
    Thanks for posting this. What an interesting project. The part I would like to know more about is the software. According to the wiki, the laptop will have a 512MB flash memory drive. And, as you wrote, it's to be running Fedora 5 (at least the protypes will). So, speaking of desktop environments, if they go with Linux, I wonder what they will run?

    I guess you could do XFCE, or something like that. Hmm.
    For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
