From Slashdot:
We will support five programming environments on the laptop: (1) Python, from which we have built our user interface and our activity model; (2) Javascript for browser-based scripting; (3) Csound, a programmable music and audio environment; (4) Squeak, a version of Smalltalk embedded into a media-rich authoring environment; and (5) Logo. We will also provide some support Java and Flash.
-- One Laptop Per Child software specs
It's built on Linux, Firefox, XWindows, and many other open source projects.

You can buy an XO laptop for your kid (or yourself) and a kid in the developing world for $399, staring November 12. A low-power laptop with wifi, word processing, and high-level programming for $400 sounds like a pretty good deal to me.
