$100 laptop effort lurches forward

@ 2006/01/31
Researchers at the MIT Media Laboratory made a splash a while back when they unveiled their plans for a $100 laptop PC intended to bring Internet connectivity and computing to students in third-world countries. Today, the New York Times has an enlightening report on the progress of that effort, along with a sense of how political conflicts have slowed progress in certain respects.

If the laptop is available for $100 using Linux, I am confident that there are enough "kind" people in the internet to lend a helping hand to the beginners.
