I've been anxiously tracking my XO laptop until I found web communities of people doing the same.
I got some helpful hints, like how to tell if my laptop has been shipped, etc.
But mostly, I am a bit frustrated with the whining of XO buyers/donors. IT'S A CHARITY! You did not order an ipod. You did not order from amazon. You ordered from a charity. Their business is not distribution. There were no promises made that you would get your laptop by Christmas.
However, I think Brightstar, the company olpc has hired for logistics, perhaps needs to get its act together. If they are charging olpc regular rates for their services, there is a problem. Olpc isn't getting logistics management, that's for sure.
I want mine. I'm like a kid. I'm anxious. I want to play. But I know it ain't about me. It's about a kid somewhere in Afghanistan or Rwanda. It ain't about ticked off people on the internet who want their toys. And I will try hard not to be one of them.
