Here's the URL for the pre-order SD cards for the XO.
This comes about 3 weeks before the One Laptop Per Child Give One Get
One promotion starts and exactly 4 weeks until the release of F10.
Use this time to encourage people to visit http://laptop.org and talk up
just how spectacular the XO is.
Remember, there are lots of people out there who will stand in line for
days waiting to buy electronics and this is their chance to have
something 'exclusive' since the XO isn't something you can buy at your
local electronics store.
With the F10 option for the XO, adults who may not find the child
focused graphical interface called Sugar practical for daily use, Fedora
allows the XO to behave in a more familiar way.
In this sense, the XO is on-par with any small form factor laptop except
your purchase of an XO during the Give One Get One promotion directly
effects the lives of children.
Again, thinking about all those people who don't think twice about
buying smart phones, game systems, and the like - there's no corporate
profit with the XO, just a chance to better the lives of children all
over the world.
