Hardware, Embedded Systems The One Laptop Per Child Project and Microsoft are working together to develop a dual-boot system to put both Linux and Windows on laptops aimed at kids in developing countries, the head of OLPC said in an interview Tuesday. "We are working with them very closely to make a dual-boot system so that, like on an Apple, you can boot either one up. The version that's up and running of Windows on the XO is very fast, it's very, very successful. We're working very hard to do both," said Nicholas Negroponte, chairman of OLPC.

in fact if you are a home user or you work in small to medium bussiness its 99% certain that you use pirated software, and in some countries the government uses also.


Hell, if 99% of people do something, perhaps that thing shouldn't be illegal anymore, it should be the state of fact, no?

Yeah, sure, thats why pirate parties like that in Sweden are appearing, and when the police shut down the Arena torrent tracker in Bulgaria they were met with street protests, so we can expect changes in the legal status quo, although countries face the preasure from foreign IP producers.
