Red Hat Shopper’s Guide Gets It Right

with one comment

Red Hat Magazine has just published a “geek” gift guide, Geek gift guide 2007.

Being a proud geek myself, I took a look to see if they got it right.

Indeed they did, for number two on their list is the OLPL XO Laptop. Number one is a wi-fi detecting T-shirt. This seems an odd choice, as the last time I checked my body cannot directly send or receive wi-fi signals.

But at least they had the XO on their list.

Others were not so smart. The New York Times is an example, as I should describe in a forthcoming post.

By the way, I will soon be installing Red Hat’s Fedora on one of my Linux boxes so I get a feel for the run-time they are providing for the XO.

Here’s a tip of my yet-to-be-received own Red Fedora to Red Hat, both for this article, and especially for their support and active participation in the OLPC project.

  1. Our gift guide’s in no particular order. 🙂 I just happened to add the wifi t-shirt last, so it ended up on top. The OLPC is totally our favorite potential gift this season!
