"After Moglen's session, I sat down with a very busy Chris Blizzard, the leader of the engineering team responsible for completing the software for the OLPC project by September. Blizzard says that the hardware is further ahead than the software. There is not much code left to be written, it seems, but there is plenty of cleanup work on the table that needs to be done in the short time remaining.

"Blizzard, who had a working unit with him, says he has enjoyed the opportunity to work on both the hardware and the software. After seeing the laptop for myself, I can appreciate that point of view. It is unlike any computer I've ever seen. Blizzard showed me the crisp, sharp, backlit color display in the room where we were talking. It's small, but very clear. Then we walked out on the patio, in the direct afternoon sun. The display changed to black-and-white mode, but no clarity was lost. It was as easy to read outside as it had been inside."
