Red Hat Shopper’s Guide Gets It Right

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.
