Where do I get the hand crank, foot pedal and solar panel to charge the battery? Is there any place I can order these things? --- How many parts is an XO composed of? So, how many plugs/solders do the assemblers have to click/solder together? From the smallest led over the connectors to the cover to be popped on... Thumbrule estimation will do. Thx. --SvenAERTS 11:05, 29 April 2009 (UTC) --- Request for Comments: In case nobody's interested in a certain market-segment -e.g. kids from poor families that are all going to be too poor anyway for a couple of more generations - then the best thing to help them is to use Open Community projects ... e.g. software but also for hardware... show where to buy and how to assemble the laptop ... and allow anybody who has the time, means, network that can assemble them to do so. Imagine some guy in the Open Community knowing the scandinavian CEO's from Nokia/Ericsson ... and they'd be interested to fill-up spare capacity during this recession ... why not. We're not going to make any money from the XO's anyway. Thx for reading this Request for Comments. --SvenAERTS 11:05, 29 April 2009 (UTC) ---

That's a fine idea. There is a group of people taling about repair centers and even running them in a few countries, as you may know. It would be great to be able to support DIY hardware in this fashion, and we do this to an extent through these centers and through the contributors program. --Sj talk 10:07, 8 December 2009 (UTC)
