    While for a while, things were not looking too good for the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project, things seem to have turned around quite nicely. Quite a few countries around the world have placed in orders for large quantities of the OLPC. Peru is proud to announce that it has added itself to that list. The 260,000 laptops en route to Peru will be placed in classrooms as soon as possible. However, don't be so sure if they order will fall through. In Libya, just when the Libyan government and OLPC heads were finalizing the paperwork, Intel came in and agreed to sell Libya a lot of Intel Classmate PCs.

    a poor country with uneducated people actually got the brains to buy laptops from a non profit organization that's trying to help them instead of trying to sue them

    Its actually nice to see a developing country taking this step for themselves. Cheers!
