When using the OLPC, a number of events can occur which change state in a way that the user is interested in. (Especially in the case of wireless access.) Having a running message log which is accessible to the user for messages like "Connecting to Wireless network Atlas 'failed'" would be useful.
The equivalent in the OS X world would be 'growl', which shows short-term message displays.
These displays would not be necessarily be re-displayed ever -- just let the user know what is going on as it is going on.
