The $100 laptop now looks like a book that carry both Linux and Widows operating systems. It is sleeker in design and has fewer mechanical parts. * Carrying both Linux and Windows, the child is able to take advantage of both operating system 'worlds' when the device is used as a computer. The book like appearance gives the device a text book like feel for when it needs to behave like a text book. This is done by splitting it into two touch screens that can either mimic a laptop with keyboard or the pages of a book. * The first XO2 machines should be ready to deliver to children in 2010. * http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/7411904.stm

I personally can't wait for those to hit the commercial markets here in the USA, I can see the usefulness for adults here. Make waiting in the doc's office or government holding pens less of a time waster...
