Run the One Laptop Per Child OS on Your Computer

21 Nov

From Tuttle SVC

If you would like to try out the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) system for yourself, follow these simple steps:

1. Download the VMware Player installer and run it;
2. Download the VMWare Image file: (Bittorrent, original, mirror) and unzip it somewhere handy;
3. Navigate to the unzipped files and double click on the olpc™ VMware Configuration File;
4. Tell the player it is ok to change the system’s UUID and click through the error messages;
5. You should have a fresh simulated XO laptop. Have fun messing with it.

I’ve mirrored the 136MB image here, but I strongly suggest downloading the bittorrent if you can.
