OLPC XO laptop operating system to be made available for free

Posted on Sunday, April 15 2007 @ 21:05:13 CEST by

DailyTech reports the people behind the One Laptop Per Child project have released the operating system of this notebook for free.
The Linux-based OS powering the One Laptop Per Child's XO laptop has taken another step forwards into fruition. Until now, the closest that the general public has been able to look at the operating system has been static screenshots and the occasional blurry YouTube video; but no longer.

A LiveCD has been released on the RedHat download site. Weighing in at a paltry 291MB, it gives OLPC developers and any other curious individuals a glimpse of the experience the "$100 laptop" will offer. For those that don't wish to check it out personally, screenshots are available from LinuxQuestions.org showcasing the interface and some applications including the lightweight web browser.
The LiveCD can be found at Redhat's download site.
