Right you are. Linux is too fat for the OLPC computer like Windows.
There is an alternative, although it is not 'ready' yet: Oberon
This lean operating system still fits on a single floppy disk. We have
it on sourceforge at the moment.
Take a look and be surprised. This -is- what Linux -used to be-.
Make drivers for the OLPC (one standard I guess) and make some more
applications and you're ready to go. Oberon is written in Oberon
(http://www.oberon.ethz.ch) a true object oriented language without the
intrinsic security leaks of C++.
Met vriendelijke groeten
