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.

ctually thats pretty much sums up what Negroponte problem with Intel.

Don't believe it. In my opinion, Negroponte is really just pissed off because Intel can provide a better economy of scale than he can -- and this would make Negroponte's OLPC uncompetitive in the market for bargain basement PCs.
