Richard Stallman on OLPC
RMS posted on his blog yesterday about the OLPC
Can We Rescue OLPC from Windows?
so I guess their commitment isn't true anymore
XO is built from free and open-source software. Our commitment to software freedom gives children the opportunity to use their laptops on their own terms. While we do not expect every child to become a programmer, we do not want any ceiling imposed on those children who choose to modify their machines. We are using open-document formats for much the same reason: transparency is empowering. The childrenâ€”and their teachersâ€”will have the freedom to reshape, reinvent, and reapply their software, hardware, and content.
is this the kind of culture we should be promoting to those kids anyway?
please digg it if u think this is important
