I wanted to give some (hopefully) constructive and useful feedback on the structure of this resource. I'm interested in Open Source software and the OLPC project, however I didn't find this resource as useful as I would have hoped.

Because the content was copied from the OLPC Wiki, it doesn't change when the Wiki changes. I believe it would be more helpful if this resource gave an outline of the important software components with just a brief description and then linked to the appropriate areas within the OLPC Wiki - or other web resource as appropriate.

That way the resource would be easier, and quicker, to browse and find software that might be interesting and the links would provide up-to-date information.

I appreciate the availability of the information in the resource, I would just like to see a structure that didn't lend itself to having out-of-date information.

Thanks,
Sandy
