Sugar Learning Platform and GNOME Desktop Now Available on One Laptop per Child XO-1.5

,----[ Quote ]
| One Laptop Per Child announced an update to 
| the XO-1.5 which enables both Sugar Labs' 
| Sugar Learning Platform and the GNOME free 
| desktop. The Sugar Learning Platform has been 
| featured on OLPC laptops since the original 
| XO-1. The recent update introduces a more 
| sophisticated interface for older students. 
| Toggling between the two environments can be 
| done with a single-click. 


High School XO-1.5 - a New Laptop Build for Teenage Students!

,----[ Quote ]
| We all know OLPC as an amazing educational 
| tool for primary school children in the 
| developing world. But is it appropriate for 
| high school students? Will teenagers flock to 
| the XO's kid-friendly design and child-centric 
| Sugar OS?


Chrome OS: Why so much confusion?

,----[ Quote ]
| What Chrome OS is not:
|     * It was never intended to be a 
|     replacement for Microsoft Windows, Mac OS 
|     X, or any of the Linux/UNIX -based 
|     distributions.
|     * It is not going to cater to everybodyâs 
|     style in computing.
|     * It will not necessarily bring everything 
|     that you are looking for in an OS (see 
|     previous statement).

One Laptop Per Child Revamps Tablet Plans

,----[ Quote ]
| The One Laptop Per Child foundation's aim to
| create the world's most innovative tablet
| computer for the developing world just took
| a giant leap toward reality. But as is often
| the case, reality may not be quite as
| exciting as imagination.
| On Thursday the foundation announced a
| partnership with chip maker Marvell to
| collaborate on a sleek and cheap touch-
| screen tablet for developing-world school
| children, a device it now plans to launch at
| the Consumer Electronics Show in January
| 2011 for less than $100. One Laptop Per
| Child (OLPC) says that's close to two years
| ahead of its scheduled release for the so-
| called XO-3, the long-awaited upgrade to the
| non-profit's XO, the so-called "hundred-
| dollar laptop" launched in 2007.
