Hi Bill,
I'm surprised too to see how far the deployments have extended. I would have liked to have been involved with OLPC longer. Maybe during school holidays? As it turns out, I'm teaching at a high school in Cooma NSW, and there are a lot of things I find surprising (and disappointing, to be honest) about the use of computers there. The NSW educ dept's laptops are very MS-centric, bloated with unnecessary software, and shackled by excessive restrictions (eg. unable to install Firefox or Chrome, must use IE). It makes me see the XOs/Sugar with a whole lot more appreciation.
