Forth journeyman. Very excited to see XO using Open Firmware with Mitch Bradley on board.

I've also worked a bit on the lightweight Xlib replacement, XCB. It might be a good fit to the XO's constrained resources.

I hope to someday see one of these gorgeous laptops in the wild. At the next OSCON, perhaps?

  • Yes! In fact, IBM donated booth space both my own rocketry club ( and the OSU Open Source Lab, which brought four of their XO prototypes. The XOs were mobbed thoughout the entire conference.

I made Template:Forth Lessons

I've made my pledge at , and November 12 can't come soon enough!

November 12 came, and I made my purchase early in the morning (my nephew's birthday, as it happens). I'll also need to order a developer key if I want to play around at the OFW prompt.
I also found out to my chagrin that there is not yet a version of LOGO being shipped on the laptop. The turtle-graphics activity Turtle Art uses a visual programming metaphor that can't even express procedures and recursion!
