This story has been around for awhile but recently some pictures were posted of a working model of the $100 laptop. I wish they had plans to sell these to the public.

this just means you'll have to buy a ticket to a third world country and beat down a few kids if you want one. road trip?

I mean if they sold them on the market manufacturing costs would likely go down and then that would mean more laptops for kids. But now instead of getting laptops they're going to get beat downs.

funny story - stayed up about 24 hours installing breezy badger (5.10) and that morning they released dapper fscking drake. (yes i know that one now that i've learned a little bash *wo0t*)
of course that didn't deter me from spending another 5 hours installing the drake :-D
