When OLPC starts their next Give 1 Get 1 program, there will be an option to purchase an upgrade that will allow users to run a standard Linux desktop, based on Fedora 10, on their XO system.

In order to make sure that this works properly, we need testers. And we are willing to swap testing time for (almost) free XOs.

Sound like fun? Want to participate? Here's what you do.

1. Add your name and contact info to the list below.

2. Purchase a Sandisk Extreme III SD card, in either 2 Gig or 4 Gig capacity. (This is where the "mostly" free part comes in.)

3. Install Fedora on said SD card. We will tell you how later.

4. Agree that you will spend at least 20 hours between now and late October testing Fedora on your XO, reporting your findings back to us in ways that we will make clear later.

5. Receive your (mostly) free XO.  :)

That's it. You need to be moderately Linux-savvy -- know how to bring up a terminal, for instance -- but beyond that, you mostly need to be willing to put in the testing time and able to follow simple directions.

Add your name to the list below!
