I don’t believe in OLPC

Check the picture of the $100 OLPC here. Notice how the Gnome preferences menu does not provide arrows up and down to scroll within that long menu list that obviously doesn’t fit on screen. It seems that OLPC does not run a standard resolution, but a modified near-VGA one and Gnome does not fit in it, as you can see from the pic. Red Hat works on this project for over a year now, and they still haven’t fixed something as vital as having all their windows fitting on the targetted resolution? I am appalled. Like I usually am with most Linux-related stuff. Apple or Microsoft would never show off with pride a piece of software that doesn’t even pass smoke testing no matter if it’s beta quality or not.
