OLPC (One Laptop Per Child Project) had announced G1G1 (“Buy Two Get One”) for public. One laptop is sent to buyer and the other laptop is sent to a child in a poor developing country.
Is this 500 MHz AMD Geode laptop compatible with Haiku?
Is there any Haiku device driver for OLPC laptops?
From OLPC developer team:
- There is no BIOS inside XO.
- There is no VGA/EGA/CGA mode.
What about creating 2 version of XO laptops:
- For developing countries, the same as today.
- Commercial version for US, Europe, Japanese markets with larger screen and keyboard, but the same motherboard, CPU and chipsets.
If Haiku can be ported to this new platform:
The customer of commercial version can ask for a bundle of HAIKU for XO with CD full of various BeOS applications from BeBits.
Is this idea possible?
