Ieder Uruguayaans schoolkind krijgt ‘open source’ laptop

From “Laptop for every pupil in Uruguay” (BBC):
Uruguay has joined the small number of nations providing a laptop for every child attending state primary school.
President Tabaré Vázquez presented the final XO model laptops to pupils at a school in Montevideo on 13 October.

From the XO-laptop website:
The success of the project in the face of overwhelming global diversity will only be possible by embracing openness and by providing the laptop’s users and developers a profound level of freedom. As the children grow and pursue new ideas, the software and the tools need to be able to grow with them and provide a gateway to other technology.
