In case that I would have kids, I wouldn't either,

And while we were looking for a Wifi chip with open driver, we got
a tip to see what chip the http://www.laptop.org project is using.
So for this thread, beside that the OLPC laptop has more Pixel:
Resolution: 1200 (H) × 900 (V) resolution (200 dpi)
I expect that some educatial stuff from OLPC will be usable for
OpenMoko devices.

And linux-vserver could help, that a parent give his Neo1973 to his
