Hardware, Embedded Systems "The biggest technology roadblock to building the USD 100 laptop championed by Nicholas Negroponte, founder and chairman of the One Laptop per Child organization, is close to resolution. That roadblock has been developing a display that is rugged, inexpensive and readable in a wide variety of conditions from low light to bright sunlight." A Google Summer of Code project started the porting of GTK+ to this technology, with Manu Cornet especially testing to determine the tweaking necessary to usual GUI themes, for the goals of performance and display clarity.

This is really interesting stuff--that swizzle effect to save power is rather unique. What really impressed me though is the Sugar theme in the GUI link--it looks like something I want to have on my computer! Keep up the good work, guys!
