Intel There's nothing like allegations of predatory conduct to bring two organizations together. Nicholas Negroponte's One Laptop Per Child project has decided to bring Intel on board as a partner and a possible future supplier, just a few months after Negroponte went on 60 Minutes and essentially accused the chip maker of trying to destroy his low-cost PC project. Intel has agreed to join the board of the OLPC and work with the organization on possible "collaborations involving technology and educational content," according to a press release Friday morning.

Well, neither has come to market, so all we have are rumors. He might have been right, he might not.

I still think the XO and Classmate PC are aimed at different markets.

Hopefully this will help. I mean, I want to see the XO succeed... but that doesn't NECESSARILY require that nobody else does.

All the geeks who keep looking at the XO and saying "Oh, I want one" can get a ClassmatePC or Eee instead.
