If you want to look at the software download Sugar 

Or if you want a slow half-arsed laptop wanabee buy a netbook.

And if you want to get involved in an education project, Raspberry Pi 
has a much more interesting focus on stimulating interest in programming 
and engineering careers. And despite the closed source Broadcom 
contribution the project is much less of a cathedral and has actively 
sought out community involvement whereas OLPC, apart from a few 
conference give aways to the lucky few, is inaccessible to most of us.
