One Laptop Per (Inner) Child

,----[ Quote ]
| The Asus Eee goes on sale in the United States this morning. Finally. The Eee
| is the less-than-two-pound, Linux-based, instant-on, 7-inch-screen,
| no-hard-disk, $400 laptop that was announced last June. It's been slowly
| making its way to the States ever since, and I've been tracking its progress
| by reading reviews from overseas. Now, at last, it's here.

| India's own $10 laptop. But as things have worked out, OLPC has already made
| an entry into India in the form of a pilot project in a rural primary school
| in a village in the state of Maharasthra. * *
