The One Laptop Per Child project is really fascinating and amazing.
Imagine a linux-based network-capable $100 laptop that can work on
human (pedal or crank) power, designed for learning in
technology-remote areas of the world. They aren't quite in production
yet, but Nigeria has ordered a million of them.
For a good overview, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One_Laptop_per_Child
The project website is http://laptop.org
The first model will not have Java, since it has not been open source
(but that seems to be changing?).
I have added Jmol as a potentially interesting application at their wiki,
