Hardware, Embedded Systems Earlier this month, OLPC founder Nicholas Negroponte open sourced the hardware for the OLPC device, inviting manufacturers to use the technology developed for the device in their own laptops, and of course to build OLPCs themselves. Negroponte also believes the OLPC project can help make netbooks better. ZDNet talked to IDC, and they don't think large OEMs will make use of OLPC's offering.

Atom ain't a speed demon either, it's merely inorder cpu with 2 threads. It already requires dual core optimized sw to get remotely decent performance so will doubling that requirement make netbook people rejoice? Are they going to do serious rendering on netbooks?
