    What's old to you could be new for someone else. I wouldn't say it's just you who thinks this is old but how does your comment add anything to the article?

    I think it's great they are trying to distribute a cheap laptop to people that may otherwise not have access to one. It's a wonderful learning tool and seeing the technology of solar powered or hand cranked computers could be the start of something better for more powerful computers.
     
  4. I participated in the original buy one , give one. I think what they are trying to do is laudible.
    They really did push the idea of netbooks.
    My personal experience was that "sugar" was "too different". Android or standard LINUX would be better in my opinion.

    I didnt say that the computer is old or anything like that... is the news about new OLPC projects, they are shipping since 2007 and yet I have to see one of this working. I meant it as an old new that gets boring everytime you get exited.

    It seems like the idea faded away on 2011

    They could even ask a bit more, or do something like the indie bundles that let you donate money (Of course starting at a base) to help them in research or maybe lower the prices for those who really need it =)
