I am interested in using an application for learning foreign languages on XO. Are any such apps available for XO? Can such an application that currently runs on Windows be installed on an XO running Windows? Thanks

A Windows program is not going to run on the XO.

There is a great XO Activity called Speak which works in a wide variety of languages...good for kids to practice newly acquired language skills.

Also, I see a small dictionary program at http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Activities but I haven't tested it.

Thanks for letting me know about Speak. Can XO be loaded with Windows in some form of dual use and maybe get such an application running,too?
