There were various conversations in the past relating to Bible related
software for the One Laptop Per Child or XO project. I would like to
start the discussion back up if anyone is interested.
At my local Python Users Group meeting (http://dfwpython.org) we had
three of the units and played around with them including messing with
the mesh networking and collaborative activities.
These are very cool, I can't say enough good about them.
While large amounts of text are out due to storage (and RAM) is there
interest in developing client or server software for and lesson
For example, you could still have bible reading assignments (including
the follow along in the class) using either the browser or just the
normal pyGTK interface receiving its information from the class (school)
There have been some great ideas generated already however having seen
some of these, I can say that the potential for teaching the world the
Word is limitless. Combining these with general education setup
missions would be a great boon for witnessing.

checkout of the sugar environment
note that with sugar, you have the latest development versions available
(my preference) with sugar-jhbuild, downloadable packages for many
platforms, and vm images such as for VMWare, Parallels, and QEMU.
Download a copy and see what the potential is!
