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

Peace =]

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

The reasoning behind the look of them is crime. People know that only students and teachers are supposed to have these, so stealing one is going to be tough since everyone will know where it came from.
