> Hello developers!
> Are you programming on XO hardware today? Working on Sugar core or
> activities? Porting Fedora or other distros to ARM?
> As I write this, XO-1.75 B1 prototypes are being assembled 20 meters
> away from me. These are engineering samples -- some will go to drop
> tests and mechanical and electrical torture tests. Luckier units will
> go to the hands of passionate developers interested in helping us with XO-1.75.
> To request one, please follow the instructions at
>  http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Contributors_program#FAQ
> Be aware -- we cannot guarantee every request will be satisfied --
> unfortunately, we have a limited number of units and we may have to
> turn some requests down.
> These units will be early samples: expect hardware and software bugs,
> and be prepared to report them and help us in the diagnosis and fixing
> (it wouldn't be fun otherwise!). We will be asking recipients to be
> very proactive in reporting bugs and using the latest software for
> them. And to remember that these machines are /on loan/: offer to pass
> on your prototype if it is not being used.
> It will be a fun 2011 -- our goal is to have a new hardware platform
> and OS: XO-1.75 running XO OS-11.3.0, and there is a lot to do between
> now and the end of the year.
> hoping to hear from you -
