RepairmanJack wrote in a submission for the new $100 Laptop Initiative. From the article: “it will rely on open-source software”. I guess the idea of the submission is: wouldn’t it be nice to get Haiku on one of those things. :) They have flash for long term storage - anyone working on booting Haiku from flash drives?

Eventually, they are supposed to be available commercially, eventually, but as of right now, the plan is to provide them only to governments. Cool concept, rearing a whole new digital generation and all.

Heck, for a green rubber laptop at $100, I’d get my kids one, if they didn’t both have 500Mhz and greater laptops already (my older ones). :P
