Windows Microsoft is conducting field trials to ensure that a modified version of Windows XP SP2 will be able to run well on the One Laptop Per Child's XO machine and that it will be able to support customers with a good experience on that hardware. "We are encouraged by what we have seen of Windows on the XO machine so far, and field trials started at the end of January involving about 200 XO machines running a customized version of Windows XP SP2 with a reduced footprint image," Orlando Ayala, senior vice president of Microsoft's Unlimited Potential Group, told eWEEK.

Is Microsoft going to forbid to uninstall Windows from the OLPC to install other OS? Currently Microsoft (with Intel) is forbidding to uninstall Windows from the donated PCs to third-world countries.

Is MS going to pull this trick again with the OLPC?
