I didn't even know you could get them in Germany. Do you know how he got ahold of his (just out of interest, I won't actually be buying one)?

Thanks, but these show a Linux distro (?) with a pretty standard Xfce4 desktop :) Nice, though.

Here are two videos of XP running on the OLPC. The first one is XP running with QEMU on Ubuntu, the second one is XP's command line without Linux.

@Mods: Can any mod split the posts about the OLPC and make a new thread? Thanks.
