Send OLPC to burningman to test durability.
I’m writing this post from an OLPC. It’s on wifi here at Foo camp running a gecko based browser. First impressions -it’s hard to type on. I’m switching to 2 finger mode.
The browser is a bit slow but runs ajaxy sites well.
Hardware looks good. Screen is nice.
A number of folks in our discussion group led by Ian Bicking wants to send a bunch of these prototypes to burningman to see how they hold up in a harsh physical environment.
More later on a better keyboard…
