Why XO?

Special commentary by: Paul Fox Most of the marketing and message surrounding the OLPC project, and the G1G1 fund-raising effort, is centered on the kids of the world who are our true mission. And that's as it should be -- you only have to look at some of the pictures from the deployments to convince yourself of that. But let's face it -- if you're going to donate enough money to both "give one and get one", you might want to be convinced that the "get one" half -- i.e., _your_ cute little green machine -- is actually going to be useful. Call it enlightened self-interest. (I'm assuming you're thinking of this at least partly as a toy for yourself. Go ahead -- admit it -- it's okay.) I got my XO during last year's G1G1 promotion. Maybe I can help convince you. One of the best parts, for me, is the screen. Shirtsleeve season always feels too short here in New England, so I like getting outside as much as possible when it's practical. Being able to walk outside to surf the web is a great feeling. Another screen feature: by flipping the laptop into "e-book" form, I take less space on the subway while reading email (offline reading, of course). Another XO plus for commuting: the extra wireless sensitivity offered by the cute green antennae makes it possible to hit the web, courtesy of a nearby open access point, from my bus stop. More OS tips and tricks after the drop. Read the rest of this entry
