If you’re curious about what the OLPC (one laptop per child) is like, Tuttle SVC shows you how to emulate it on windows, thanks Brian!

  1. Download the VMware Player installer and run it;
  2. Download this file and unzip it somewhere handy;
  3. Navigate to the unzipped files and double click on the ‘olpc’ VMware Configuration File;
  4. Tell the player it is ok to change the system’s UUID and click through the error messages;
  5. You should have a fresh simulated XO laptop. Have fun messing with it.
