Now, they are "working with Microsoft to ensure that it can run Windows".

Your post, and others, seem to be a bit surprised at this "Windows" thing. It has been in the works for a while, with OLPC working with Microsoft a year ago.

Allowing Microsoft to have some early development units so they could work on Windows CE (or whatever other version) isn't a bad thing, nor it is really shocking.
