I think the "Give one, get one" program, begun November 12, is a significant event for Linux and free software. News coverage such as Bill Board's article in the BBC, " Give me rice, but give me a laptop too", give an indication of the importance of OLPC. The G1G1 program provides the opportunity for individuals outside of the target groups to purchase the laptop. It seems to me that such an adaptation of the plans for this extraordinary project is worth a mention.
