Playing with the OLPC OS

Posted in

I just got a qemu image of the OLPC (one laptop per child) OS and played with it for a few minutes. It's really different from anything I've ever seen before, the whole gui is really based around sharing and being able to communicate with other friends on the mesh wifi network that gets created when you put a bunch of these boxes next to each other (I've yet to use it, but it's there). The taskbar is right in the middle of the screen which forms a circle of open applications centered around a little stick figure which I'm assuming represents you.
