Phoronix managed to get a quick look at a beta of the Linux based OS, Sugar,  that will be on the $100 laptops the OLPC plans to distribute.  There wasn't enough for them to do a full review, but the screenshots give you an idea what this ... rather unique ... distro might look like.

"We've heard a lot about the OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) project, which aims to provide a $100 laptop for developing

nations, and we've heard a bit about its Sugar interface and other technical abilities, but recently we spent the time with

QEMU and a test build of the OLPC XO operating system (Fedora based) to see how it really shapes up."
