XOh the Humanity! The First XO Brick Delivery

Filed under
OLPC

So, I was a first day donor (bought online about two hours in) and finally got my XO this morning... and it is DOA! No lights, no power.

Like many of us, I've been reading the blog posts from folks who'd gotten theirs already, and I've been dying to get my hands on one. You can only imagine the horror as it slowly set in that I wasn't doing anything wrong, but that my XO was actually completely non-functional (no charge lights or power up or errors, no activity at all).

It turns out, to the best of my knowledge, that mine is the first brick that's been reported to OLPCNews. Not a distinction I'd like to have, but there it is. After the initial fury/disappointment, I remembered that this is a charity organization, and I started to understand why they were hesitant to sell to consumers in the US.

Usually developers work around platform quirks, but that’s not good enough for Linus Torvalds, the man behind Linux. When crashes in The Witcher 2 were caused by Linux’s core software, Torvalds not only requested the bug be fixed, but that Steam games should be used in the future as “good tests of odd behaviour”.
