Tue 29th Apr 23:52 2008: OLPC

A recent
with Nicholas Negroponte (OLPC founder) points out that "Microsoft has been working to get a slimmed-down version of Windows to run on XO laptops"

Mako Hill has written an excellent response:

OLPC does not get to choose if educational technology happens. If we work hard at it though we might get to influence the "how" and the "who." Proprietary software vendors like Microsoft want the "who" to be them. With free software, users can be in power.

FSF has a further response
