Na, da bin ich ja einmal gespannt, was aus meinem OLPC-XO wird, das ich Mitte Februar, Anfang März erwarte!
Aber dafür hat mir Negroponte persönlich geschrieben 🙂
Subject: Update On Your XO Laptop

From: OLPC Customer Care <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Please accept my apologies for the delay in receiving your XO laptop.
Give One Get One was such a phenomenal success that we over-taxed our
order processing and payment systems. Demand exceeded supply.
Additional XO laptops are being built now and will be delivered in 45 to
60 days. If you wish to reconsider your contribution in the face of
this delay, we will issue a refund to you. We have set up a dedicated
phone line for these requests. The number is 1-800-883-8102. In the
meanwhile, please know that laptops are in the process of going to
Mongolia, Cambodia, Afghanistan, Rwanda and Haiti as part of the „give
one“ side of the equation. Fortunately, OLPC’s mission of getting
laptops to the children in these countries has not been delayed. In
Mongolia, the children are already enjoying themselves and learning new
things with their XO laptops. Please see:

learning is gaining wider acceptance thanks to support like yours.
