During the summer of last year I wrote about the $100 Laptop. The brain child of MIT's Nicholas Negroponte, the missions was to create a laptop cheap enough to distribute to every child in the developing world.
Since then the vision has become a reality. The XO Laptop has been out for awhile, so I thought it would be fun to show some of the interfaces and icons that makes up the laptop. The laptop itself runs a version of the open source Linux operating system. The main graphical interface for the computer is called Sugar. The system itself promotes sharing and connectivity.
Currently the One Laptop Per Child campaign is doing a Give One Get One program in the United States and Canada, where if you donate money toward one laptop for a child in the developing world, one child in your life can also get the laptop. The program has been extended until December 31, 2007
