OLPC's Give One, Get One program to be rekindled Nov. 17

Amazon.com is facilitating this year's installment of the One Laptop Per Child donation program.

Starting on Monday, One Laptop Per Child's XO laptop will be available through the Give One, Get One program again, this time facilitated by Amazon.com.

For $400, the nonprofit low-cost laptop program will send one XO to the purchaser and one to a school-age child in a developing country.

OLPC said in September that it wanted to revive last year's successful program, but didn't have the infrastructure to support the program alone.

Although Microsoft has started making Windows available for the OLPC , that extends only to those in developing markets like Colombia and Peru , not folks taking part in Give One, Get One.

For more about the upcoming Windows XP version of the XO, see the video below.
