Excellent articles, Rahul.

Just to be picky, the above link is from The Economist, the
highly-respected British business magazine. To its credit, the
Economist magazine does explicitly mention

The BBC articles are quite good in their details and illustrations,
including the Flash video clip of Chris Blizzard.

All in all, great publicity for the OLPC and Fedora, although Fedora
is referenced
by a strangely obscure phrase in the BBC article: "The laptop has a
bespoke Linux operating system (OS) developed by leading open source
software company Red Hat."

Perhaps, the OLPC XO laptop will feature in an episode of BBC World's Click TV
show in the near future. Let's hope they mention Fedora in the show.

Best Regards,

John Babich
