I just ordered an XO laptop from the One Laptop Per Child Project. They have a deal where you donate $399, and they use $200 of your donation to fund a laptop for a child in the developing world, and you get one of the laptops, too.

Next up: roll back to factory installation image, apply all fixes again, shut down cleanly, apply more fixes, install printers, then install programs.
tostita said, “It’s as if the reliability of Microsoft operating systems took a ten-year trip backwards.” I’m tending to agree.
