Latest news from BBC that I read, It seems OLPC (one-laptop per child) XO laptop will be available to the general public to purchase after 2008.
This was confirmed by the chairman of OLPC group (Nicholas Negroponte) that they have considered commercial schemes to distribute XO Laptops around the world. It isn’t clear yet how much does an OLPC cost to the general public, but they are considering a “buy 2 get 1” scheme, perhaps as a source of donating or funding the project.
Personally, I’m eager to test one of the machine out myself, I envy ditesh and jayakumar because they had the chance to try out the machine in person. :p
