Interesting. Though the challenge they have -- localising closed src
binaries... to non ASCII-using locales -- is rather hard.

Hard not to note the very misinformed description of OLPC in Uruguay:

Recently, the project made a group to provide computers for every
student in Uruguay, but after years of deal-making and political
machinations, it is still only making relatively slow progress.
