Hi Ben,

Apologies for the late reply.

We are no longer distributing XO-1 machines. In fact, we were the
first country to start deploying the XO-1.5s.

I think the XO-1s are best kept as developer machines. They can be
flashed with the same software (different kernel, otherwise it's
basically the same) as we run on the XO-1.5s:

This makes them fairly worthy for testing and developing activities
for Australian schools.

I am also organising a BoF:

Feel free to drop by and ask any questions you may have. You may even
find an interested developer you may want to give your XO to.


Bring choice back to your computer.
