Playing with the OLPC XO

Thanks to super-cool Robert Nagle who loaned us his XO, we have something new to play with this week. I will add some video of the XO in action, but for now here is a photo of the XO with our lovely web page open. Check back for more on the XO. Thanks, Robert!

Katherine ,

Thank you and Robert Nagle for the chance for a LJ testdrive of the OLPC.

Can you add pictures of all the I/O connections with your next info?

By the way, great job on the new anti-spam measures on the LJ blog system.

Certainly

I will definitely add those images.

Thanks for the kind words, and I am sorry our filter caught you in its spam trap. We added some additional measures to ensure that actual humans are able to get their comments on our site. In the past the spam has been so overwhelming that legitimate comments were getting lost in the sea of spam, and there were just so many that I occasionally missed real ones while obvious spam slipped through.

I hope our tweaks eventually lead to a far friendlier system. Thanks for participating!

Update: Here are those photos

Linux Management with Red Hat Satellite: Measuring Business Impact and ROI

For many IT organizations, Linux is a mainstay for deploying Web servers and has evolved from handling basic file, print, and utility workloads to running mission-critical applications and databases, physically, virtually, and in the cloud. As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
