Most of you probably know about the OLPC Laptop program. Pretty neat little laptop thingy they have going. They have their two week 'give 1 get 1' program and it's for a good cause.

Anyway, I'm gonna order one just because I think it's a good way to promote Linux and I'll probably give the Laptop as a Christmas gift to one of my little cousins. Figured I'd let those that haven't been following it know about it in case they were interested.

Here's a link to the program: http://www.laptopgiving.org/en/index.php
And some specs on the laptop itself: http://bc.tech.coop/blog/071112.html

I really ought to buy one (public education career and all). I've been a big fan of the project, and i think it deserves support (my wife may disagree at the sight of the price vs any claim to "needing it I might make). Are they all kermit green, though?

Edit: in the meantime I think I'll have a look at the qemu image
the quickstartguide seems simple enough: Here
