Don't make em like they used to! e.g. this just in from Ghana:
"amazing is that NONE of the laptops we have brought, on and off, say five years ago or so are working. Full of mold and who knows what. But the OLPCs keep perking along. This is not a perfect world---but the 5th grade or so level within walking distance are getting computer classes regularly at the library. Perfect world? No, but they can say they’ve had the experience. And who knows?? I myself grew up with no electricity, no running water, horses instead of tractors, an old wall-based telephone that barely worked, etc. A lot has to do with the individual taking the experiences put in front of them and running with it!!"
Sadly today most people dismiss OLPC hype, preferring the cheapest possibly junk, refusing to even consider what a "rugged" business model might one day look like..
