OLPC Sugar: The Best Of All the Project?

Filed under
OLPC

I do not believe in the OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) project, a.k.a. the "$100 laptop". I couldn't possibly believe in a "handmill laptop", and I don't believe this is the solution for the 3rd world countries. I very much liked (given the intended audience) the proposed design and some mockups.



Full Story.

Mockups.

I like

I like it too, I think it's real cute.

You talk the talk, but do you waddle the waddle?

re: I Like

Cute....CUTE! Computers are supposed to be cold, square-edged, and possibly intimidatingly blade-runner-esque. Preferable owned and operated by adults wearing white lab coats and writing arcane mathematics on whiteboards and using a Bunsen burner to heat their coffee... Cute - NEVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

re: I Like

lolol... 'fraid I'm gonna hafta disagree with ya there.

Fedora: The Latest

  • New "remi-php71" repository
  • PHP on the road to the 7.1.0 release
  • First round of Fedora 24 Updated Lives now available. (torrents expected later this week)
    As noted by my colleague on his blog the first round of F24 Updated Lives are now available and carry the date 20160720, Also as mentioned last week on his blog F23 Respins are not going to be actively made, however we and the rest of the volunteer team will field off-off requests as time and resources permit. We are considering a new/second tracker for the Updated Spins but as of today there are only .ISO files available at https://alt.fedoraproject.org/pub/alt/live-respins [shortlink] F24 Live-Respins . The F24 respins carry the 4.6.4-200 Kernel and roughly ~500M of updates since the Gold ISOs were released just 5 weeks ago. (some ISOs have more updates, some less)
