I have been following the OLPC movement for some time now. When I heard about the G1G1 (Give One Get One) program I decided I wanted to participate. I ordered mine the first day (Mid November if I remember correctly) and finally received delivery a few days ago.

It’s a pretty cool little system. It is taking me a little while to get used to the small display. I just installled opera which makes for a much nicher browsingn experience then then the built-in simple browser. I want to see kegs for linux running on this little beast as well as the Linux port of AppleWin. If your an Amiga fan at all the Amiga Forver emulator already runs on the device. The screen rez is a nice 1200 x 900 (200DPI) on a 7.5″ LCD.

 I will post a picture of kegs for linux running on it once I get it compiled and running.
