Perhaps, but the olpc operating system is based on fedora core 6 (soon
to be 7), and if you want to compile any C-based libraries or programs
for the platform, you need a copy of FC6. I can develop in Python on
ubuntu just fine, but every time I need to compile some C code I need to
launch VMWare -- not an ideal situation.
