SIL LSDev Linux Development

Language software for Linux and Mac OS X

Our own OLPC

We’ve just received our own OLPC hardware, through the beta programme. It is an XO B2. The hardware is really nifty, although surprisingly heavy. The software is still a little rough in places, but continues to improve at an amazing rate.

We’ll be experimenting with it in all kinds of ways, but the real reason for having it is so that we can try porting various pieces of our software to it and see how well they work on it. In particular, we’d like to see how Graphite performs there.
