$100 laptop project launches 2007


The laptop could one day cost as little as $100

The first batch of computers built for the One Laptop Per Child project could reach users by July this year.

The scheme is hoping to put low-cost computers into the hands of people in developing countries.

Ultimately the project's backers hope the machines could sell for as little as $100 (£55).

The first countries to sign up to buying the machine include Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Nigeria, Libya, Pakistan and Thailand.

I have used KDE & found it wanting. Registry issues, crude file dialog, erratic drag & drop, coarse (stair-step) font rendering, not-so-hidden preferences files cluttering my home directory, are objections I can think of offhand. Apple particularly has raised the bar here.

Not everything Microsoft does is bad, esp. when they copy Apple! It's not as if they're a Vatican operation.

Neil, you must not have looked at the KDE desktop lately, I don't like it in that it reminds me too much of Windows XP, Windows users have no problem using a Linux desktop system.

Now this is gilding the lily!

Yet another user interface design? As if there aren't enough already.

Unix/Linux are OK once you've chosen & mastered a shell. Otherwise, the half-baked *nix GUIs I've seen are pathetic. Who knows, maybe those poor urchins are latent Linux gurus.

Now that's a possibility, Globilin. However, I bet that www.crosswire.org will have a Bible program that will work on it. A program like Bibletime should be come pre-installed on any computer that Christians pass out.

I'm happy to see that Microsoft has nothing to do with this project.

Laptops are being made as cheaply as possible so more people can have them and more people can be spied on as they type in Bildebergers, Tri-lateral Commission, Alex Jones and other stuff on Google. Don't feed the beast

Now, if there is only a way for video game companies to figure out how to make and sell $1 games. If they don't, how will these poor kids keep up with Americans?
