Hardware, Embedded Systems The One Laptop Per Child project, including its leader Nicholas Negroponte, has weathered quite a few storms lately. There was a flood of criticism coming from the open source world when Negroponte stated that Windows might become the platform of choice, and when former employee and contributor Ivan Krstic stepped in the round, both the project as well as its leader had to face quite a few harsh words. All this hasn't slowed down the project at all, it seems, as Negroponte just unveiled the plans for version 2.0 of the OLPC. Instant update: There's a video of the unveiling too.

Didn't they say that they weren't after upgrades and that instead of upgrading they would keep driving the price lower and lower? What happened to that?

Windows... upgraded hardware regularly... is this really still OLPC?
