Graphics, User Interfaces The OLPC's interface is simply way too complicated. I just read through the human interface guidelines for the project; and by god, I got lost after only a few paragraphs. How are kids supposed to learn all this? Read on for my thoughts.

"We must always make sure OLPC is for kids not geeks."

I'm pretty sure the target kids for OLPC aren't stupider than the kids in the "West" so I don't see why they'd have to use a "simpler", different UI.
What is the target age for OLPC anyway?

Still I couldn't find a place which define the target age group. Some screenshots says its for 5-6 years.
