MIT $100 laptop project
I'm not sure where the specs for it are yet, or when it will be availible, but if it's anywhere near compatible with Haiku, I will pledge the cost of the first as soon as they become availible to be donated to the Haiku development team.
This could be an enourmously important project worldwide, and the fact that it will be running Linux leaves a very nice gap for Haiku to offer it's self up as a replacement system possibly. I have no way of knowing yet what difficulties will be involved, but at least in this way I know that we can evaluate it as soon as possible.
I will be looking into aquirering one, or if someone thinks they can speed the process of getting one for the Haiku team, please email me.
note: It is a 500 MHz processor, so it will have plenty of power in that respect.
