OLPC Re: [OS:N:] Is the Open Source Now list alive?
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
I've been on the list for several years and am glad it's still hear because maybe whoever is left can help me with a new problem. I'm now in journalism and working on a story about the OLPC and its effects. I'm curious, from the standpoint of both hardware and software, what people see has or think will happen to the industry as a result of this device. Will we see more flash-driven machines (I think we are)? Will we see more sw development for this machine/OS/GUI? Will the more commercial enterprises now recognize, as Intel and Microsoft appear to be doing, that there is a market even in developing countries for the right sized/priced computing product? Are there other downstream effects coming? If you want to respond to me off-list, you can send to this email or to pswider@xxxxxxxxxxx, although I can see that this thread might be appropriate for the list.
