Ever a trustable resource, The Register has completed its full review of the OLPC XO laptop. The verdict? I don’t want to spoil the surprise. Actually, I do: they are pleased, but cautious and critical of several bits. The browser is lacking somewhat (though Opera has an XO port), the flat file browsing scheme (no folders or containers) is unintuitive for most people who have grown up with folders, and the unit they had started freaking out after a few days. Other than that, they thought it was a cool device with lots of potential, but with the requisite hitches associated with first-generation hardware. Read the whole 7-page affair below.
