According to the system requirements for MATLAB 7.5, it won't run
on the XO laptop due to insufficient RAM (256MB present, 512MB
required). In a perfect world, that would mean you'd pick an older
version that runs on our hardware and consider open sourcing it, like
EA did with the tremendously popular SimCity. The latter made
gamers around the world rejoice -- perhaps MathWorks could do the same
for us math-heads; getting some real numerical analysis tools into the
kids' hands would be awfully exciting.
