Amazon.com needs some Fedora Love

Actually, Both OLPC and Fedora opted out of any earnings so the prices
have been set based on cost recovery, but the F10 card does help boost
sales of the XO during Give One Get One because Fedora adds flexibility
to the hardware.
So think of boosting 'profit' for OLPC and Fedora in terms of reach.
Each XO user is a potential Fedora user and each Fedora user is a
potential XO user. Not to mention new folks on both sides of that
equation knowing that they'll get an OS their kids will love (Sugar) and
one where the layout and function is more familiar (Fedora).
The price of the cards at On-Disk.com is $32.02 and $40 at Amazon to
account for their commission of 15% and $1.35 per card plus their
monthly membership fee.
If you want a blank card I can extend the 'testing' price to make sure
you get one at cost ($30US) We'll have them in inventory on the 19th as
we prepare for duplication once F10 is released.
Email off list if you have questions on prices.
