Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Haiti Partners participated in a pilot with Waveplace and OLPC
(One Laptop Per Child) of 200 xo laptops in April and May of this
year. Last week I (John Engle) visited with about 20 students from
our various partner schools to see how they're progressing.
Respecting one of OLPC's principles, all students in our partner
schools keep the laptops so that they can continue learning.
"I was amazed to see progress they've made in using them:
typing, doing illustrations, taking and manipulating photos,
creating electronic books, doing math, etc."
