Fat Linux

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
