OLPC XO on a Fedora ARM platform!

As has been previously announced OLPC is planning on moving to an ARM processor to advance the XO platform. The major advantage is similar computing power while having a massive reduction in power usage so as to maximise runtime.

Chris Ball has just posted a XO 1.75 status update to the Fedora OLPC list to let us all know that the project is moving forward and by the end of a recent bringup event the board is now booting a linux kernel and what is presumably a hacked up version of Fedora 12. YAY!
