Orange County ?!

I am looking for the critical mass to form an Orange County, CA user group. Please post your interest.

old European interest

(from obsolete XO_Giving/Users page)

If you don't provide contact info or sign your post, there's not much point in saying "Let's meet!"


Mine arrived today. Great machine, I wished you could buy them through regular channels.


I have one now in the South Dublin area. Does anyone else in Ireland have one? Feel like getting geeky in a pub?


I have one in Mallorca. Is there anybody else here with an XO?


I have ordered 2 XO laptops through G1G1. When the laptops arrive to me it will be possible to look and feel them at Stockholm Linux User Group


Has anybody else in Switzerland or elsewhere in Europe ordered an XO through "Give 1 Get 1" (through a friend in 'North America', obviously...) ? Leave a note here to network (and to discuss how to advance this with our ministery of education...). Vorburger 15:05, 25 November 2007 (EST)

Duh, self-talk, future visitors, see OLPC_Switzerland! ;-) Vorburger 18:49, 4 January 2008 (EST)

United Kingdom

I have ordered a laptop to be delivered to my home (in Vermont) Hopefully I'll have it and am based in Leeds UK now anyone else getting one?

Update Still waiting on arrival. In theory it would have been delivered to home on January 15th, but as of the 17th still no laptop. Will update once it finally arrives. Seeing as I am based in Leeds without any means of transportation it looks like I'll only be able to meetup with DanielDrake --Koolkat 07:15, 18 January 2008 (EST)

London here, if there is any other please get in touch! --Fbrutsch 11:16, 1 January 2008 (EST)

Another student I know at the university (Manchester) has ordered a G1G1 which should be arriving soon. -DanielDrake 05:47, 19 January 2008 (EST)

Mine has arrived in Chicago, and will very shortly be en route to me in the UK --Robert Baskerville 19th January 2008

Two laptops at The Hamilton School in Aberdeen. Anyone else outside of England have an XO? - Clawrie 20:35, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

Mine arrived on Thursday 5 June 2008, after a gruelling 6 month wait - part waiting for OLPC to deliver to the US, and part waiting for my friend in the US to forward it on to me. I live in South Yorkshire and would love to speak to other XO users locally and in the UK. --Dave Lee 18:02, 6 June 2008 (EDT)
