XO: SO-SO future
But on second thought, there already were many organizations addressing those needs. Perhaps it is a good thing one group tries a different tack. So in November 2007, I signed up for the OLPC Give-One Get-One program. That I could explore a new piece of hardware running Linux appealed to the geek in me. That my then 7 year old son would benefit from the XO appealed to the father in me. And that an XO would be donated to a child in a developing nation appealed to the "do a good deed" in me.
