The OLPC, 3 Months In
Back in December, I was one of the 170,000 eager Linux geeks who forked out $400 for the privilege of getting my hands on a One Laptop Per Child XO. To be honest, my initial impression was not great. For one thing, the keyboard was (and continues to be) the wrong size and feel for productive typing by an adult. I really canÃ¢â¬â¢t complain about this, as it wasnÃ¢â¬â¢t designed for adults, and I have managed to adapt somewhat to get something approaching a reasonable typing speed.
