OLPC Give One Get One – And a Look at the Technology

The OLPC “get one, give one” program is restarting on Monday, November 17. Last year the program was successful in generating the production of 150,000 XO Laptops. This year the G1G1 program is being run through Amazon. Despite the recent installation of Windows XP on some XO laptops, the XO laptops sold through the G1G1 program will boot Linux Sugar only.

If you’re interested in the wireless technology used in the XO laptop, check out this video of Robert Scoble interviewing Michall Blestas from OLPC.
