Giving the XO laptop the Edge.

The XO laptop, the flagship laptop design of the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) campaign got the "Edge" it needed recently. The rocker's edge that is. Long time member of U2 Edge created a startup sound that will play as the laptop starts up.

“I'm delighted to support One Laptop Per Child," said Edge. "It's an amazing aim to use this new technology to help children all over the world."

For those of you who aren't in the know, the OLPC campaign is an educational project founded by Nicholas Negroponte. The goal of the foundation is to provide children around the globe the opportunity to learn and explore the world around them through a bright green laptop.

Here is a video on the XO:
