"One Laptop Per Child" Demo Out

Christopher Blizzard, of Red Hat, gave a very nice demo of the One Laptop Per Child unit.

Apparently Microsoft and Intel have publicly criticized the project, claiming that it is wrongly focusing on the cost of the hardware, but then that is to be expected since it will run Linux instead of Windows.

It’s really nice that this group will be able to produce a $100 portable computer for kids.
