I think they ought to be applauded for their efforts. Intel donated 
thousands of free laptops to Nigeria and is selling thousands more at below 
cost. Intel is essentially making a charitable donation to help the 
children. As is Microsoft who donated hundreds of thousands of dollars that 
will also be used to help children in developing countries.

Why do linux users like you hate children and get angry when rich 
corporations donate much needed money and computers to them?
