More on the OLPC: Part 7: So what's installed on this doohickey?

The community is abuzz with the OLPCs as people finally get them. I see reviews on The OLPC News boards that seem to generally sort people like this:

- Those that haven't gotten the OLPC
- Those that have, and are bummed it's not what they expected
- Those that have, and are thrilled

And I'm the last set. This thing is still pretty cool, and I am just scratching the surface as to what it's capable of. The only thing I have "modded" so far is "Doom" game I installed (via YUM). I still have to load up Sim City. There's also a lot of other applications you can install, either via YUM or the proprietary .ox format.

There's a local DC user's group, and I think I am going to try and make their second meeting in DC this 31st (a Thursday). It will be nice to test out the networking features of the OLPC with another OLPC.

There are a bunch of packages installed on this thing, but it only fills a third of the 1gb flash drive. YUM and rpm both work on this system, since it's Fedora (Red Hat) based. Some people, after installing gcc and make, have gotten some basic compiling done already. Others have managed to get another Linux OS installed. But here's most of what comes from the basic setup (I only added prboom myself, the doom game):
