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.

At first he slept with AMD and now he is in bed with Intel. In between he dated with microsoft also creating doubts in faithful linux community.


But in the minds of rational adults, it demonstrated that he is primarily concerned with building a useful device - and not the "social acceptability" of the people supplying the hardware and software. I would be much more alarmed if Negroponte *had* engaged in the sort of mindless "free software fundamentalism" that's becoming so prevalent.
