genericamente sapevo di si, guardandoci ho trovato questo:
The software of the OLPC is open source, the operating system is Fedora
Core, the graphical user interface is called Sugar. A special version of
Firefox is used as web browser, the word processor is Abiword. E-Mail is
sent and received through GMail. LinuxBIOS is stored on an 1 MB flash ROM.
