Thank you for letting us know of this problem with LATU

I do not think the EU will be very happy with this 'control' of a democratic freedom by LATU as they are funding the region quite heavily [18 million euros] through LATU management

see http://latu21.latu.org.uy/en/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=277:latu-to-manage-econormas-a-18-million-euros-cooperation-project-&catid=35:noticias-de-latu&Itemid=260

Also, I do not think this is what was intended by OLPC, so they may not be happy, either....?

Perhaps googlebot/our posts/these pages will help to make them aware of this hindrance to your children's OLPC project, and the future for your countryfolk and bring pressure for change? Wink

Good Luck

Forward Puppy! - thanks ttuuxxx Very Happy

Your right Aitch, I'm not for any sort of censorship. That will drive me even more to succeed in this project.

PostPosted: Sun 22 Nov 2009, 11:52    Post subject: I hope you can port Puppy to OLPC XO
Subject description: Childs need a REAL and standard GUI
 

Hi folks. Sorry by my insistence, but I suffer the horrible Sugar interface.
When I tried to save the Journal's files from my daughter XO, we end with
400MB of obscure files. And I make this using command line, because in Journal you can not save multiple entries at once.
The childrens here in Uruguay are accostumed to delete all files in Journal and to start again, because when Journal is almost full, XO do not work.
It is equal to erase all the notebook. All of this work and his favourite songs, etc. will be erased regularly.
This is a shame. And a child of 10 or more years need a real GUI similar to real computers in the real world.
I hope that Puppy can work in the OLPC.
If I can help, please let me know at alejandro.lavarello (at) gmail . com

Subject description: Intentionally, LATU do not allow a secondary OS in XO
 

Yesterday, I have asked to official LATU's technical support about a second operating system in uruguayan's XO. The answer is:

"
Hello Alejandro,
The XO delivered in primary schools because of its security system
not allow the installation of another operating system.
Any question you have not feel free to communicate.
Greetings,
Natalia González
"

I think that is a sort of dictatorial behavior.

The response, in Spanish, is:

Hola Alejandro,
Las XO entregadas en primaria debido a su sistema de seguridad
no permiten la instalación de otro sistema operativo.
Cualquier consulta que tengas no dudes en volver a comunicarte.
Saludos,
