Unpacking the XO laptops

The XO laptops arrived today! I've uploaded a few photos to flickr...since I know some of you will want to see them :-)


I really liked the modified "hello world" message, on the boot screen.

The XO Laptop and GalaxyGoo

Did you notice the new category on this blog? Well, I'm pretty excited about it: XO laptop.

A while ago, we sent in a project proposal to the OLPC developers program. Today, I found out it was approved, and that two XOs are on the way.

I can hardly wait to get started! already studying the specs, before I even have the machine in my hands. Working in a Linux environment will be new for me, and while I've dabbled in Python I haven't done much with it yet. That's about to change. I get to be a newbie all over again!
