If I were lucky enough to be in a TuxLab or
some other Linux-based workshop, as a
student with time to explore, I might


of some 14+ weeks ago (by now).  You'll find
a link to Pie Menus, kind of like iPod wheels
in that you think in terms of circular "clock
like" motions.  Indeed, one of the examples
is a clock menu.


Why this is so good in a Linux context is
import gtk, cairo, pango just works, whereas
I can see working for hours to do anything on
Windows with this code -- a fancy way of
saying this Python code is somewhat
platform specific.  But where OLPC is concerned
that's not a problem, cuz it's all GNU & Linux
under the hood.
