Update: Now you can install Doom on your XO with a simple hack from the OLPC News XO Games Forum.Now imagine you are the One Laptop Per Child software design team, and you've just received the very first order of Children's Machine XO's. Around a thousand pounds of laptops actually, and you wanna take one for a fun filled test drive.
Or you could do what Christopher Blizzard and friends did. You could get all old school crazy and install and play DOOM (the original) on the OLPC XO:
I have to agree with the video's defining comment, "This is so 1992," and it's also so damn cool! And what could be better than a killing spree on a laptop for children? A killing spree on a reflective dual mode screen! That right, this next video shows DOOM carnage with the backlight off and the screen in black and white reflective mode:
Damn, now that's got me all full of techno-lust! Um pretty please, can we all have one too now? Can we buy a OLPC via eBay XO sales already? All the cool kids in Brazil and Argentina (but not Thailand) are getting them for Christmas!
I want my OLPC XO too!
