Red Hat Magazine has just published a “geek” gift guide, Geek gift guide 2007.
Being a proud geek myself, I took a look to see if they got it right.
Indeed they did, for number two on their list is the OLPL XO Laptop. Number one is a wi-fi detecting T-shirt. This seems an odd choice, as the last time I checked my body cannot directly send or receive wi-fi signals.
But at least they had the XO on their list.
Others were not so smart. The New York Times is an example, as I should describe in a forthcoming post.
By the way, I will soon be installing Red Hat’s Fedora on one of my Linux boxes so I get a feel for the run-time they are providing for the XO.
Here’s a tip of my yet-to-be-received own Red Fedora to Red Hat, both for this article, and especially for their support and active participation in the OLPC project.
