I'm on the list for getting one for $300 and they donate the other 2 somewhere else. Don't know if it will go through though. I don't think we'll get enough pledges.

The last video I saw of it running it was running a stripped down Fedora Core 5 install.

We are waiting for rev B devboards to come available to test on, and are discussing if we want to support it in Ångström, since the OLPC is a touchy political subject.

why would olpc os hacking be touchy, assuming you are working on an open source os?
