One Laptop Per Child or The Gods Must Be Crazy?

I have a fetish for the OLPC XO laptop. I like the project’s vision and mission, and I love the little green and white whizbang. It’s open source, it’s full of features, and it’s virtually indestructible. Did I mention that it’s a mere $200? Or would be if you could get one. Well you can on ebay, but don’t expect to pay $200. Nevertheless, the project and the product have critics. These people will have to get it open before they can decide which side of the fence they are on.
