PCs for the Poor - As Good As Their Hype?
,----[ Quote ]
| Negroponte named companies that had agreed to collaborate on what
| would become the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) project.
| Notably, the list did not include Microsoft and Intel, the world's
| largest software and microchip manufacturers, respectively. Instead,
| the laptop would use a processor from Advanced Micro Devices and an
| operating system based on Linux, whose code is freely available for
| anyone to modify and distribute.
The project saw great advancement and success recently.
