The Northern Territory has seen the formal launch of One Laptop Per Child deployments in Australia.
The One Laptop Per Child organisation (OLPC), looks to have conceded that its "$100 laptop" has been a gigantic lapflop as the global recession bites deeper.

Whether it was to your taste or not, there’s no denying the ASUS Eee Linux subnotebook was a massive sales success. Demand far exceeded initial production so it’s not surprising competitor models are on their way.
