Summary of 'Under the XO hood, the guts of an OLPC machine.'

  All the really low level stuff you ever wanted to know about the XO
machines.  Development of the LinuxBIOS to Open Firmware, secure boot mode,
Power management without ACPI or APM, kernel hacks, DCON, how the wireless
dongle works, accelerated graphics, composit drawing YUV conversion and
hardware assisted rotation.  And of course all the questions you can ask.
Bring your XO and have some fun!
