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.

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

both being low cost, low power laptops, aimed at education, aimed at developing countries, and sold to Governments, in large quantaties. Clearly they are the same product type.

But your right they are different, one if driven by wanting to improve the world, and the other by Evil.
