Open Source in action

I had a great time last night visiting Catalyst, who provide software and services to some pretty high-profile NZ projects, but also seem to have a lot of fun. I liked them immensely, and it’s always encouraging to see successful businesses built around Open Source.

Some of them are helping with OLPC on the side, and I was able to play with one of the laptops for the first time. I was quite impressed.

Green computing I see! Maybe they will come in a range of colours like Croc shoes…

Yes, according to Jim Gettys they will indeed,come in nice bright oranges, yellows, reds, purples and so forth. At this point they’re not sure whether the different colours will be distributed in different areas or exactly how that will work out. It probably won’t be the kids choosing the colours though.
