UES Sevilla

The Ubuntu Education Summit has been quite good so far. Today people from various projects and distributions were giving presentations and talks, and tomorrow we’re going to have a workshop discussing the problems that were presented and discuss possible solutions. I talked about tuXlabs and about some of the lessons we learned in South Africa.

I also got a chance to play with the Intel Classmate PC. At the moment users have the choice of KDE 3.5.1 (not sure which distribution) or Windows XP, and apparently it supports the XO interface too. It’s probably not as innovative as the OLPC machine, but it certainly is a nice piece of hardware. I’ve love to have one.

Also got some Ubuntu and Edubuntu CD’s, they look really nice!

  1. “KDE 3.5.1 (not sure which distribution)”
    Maybe Mandriva? I read somewhere that it was going to be installed as an option on Classmate.

  2. The Classmate doesn’t have all the innovative power management that the XO has, to name one detail. The XO can also charge from any arbitrary DC power source - something like from 3V to 40V.

  3. Yeah, I’m pretty sure it is Mandriva.
