Hardware, Embedded Systems The road to the One Laptop Per Child has been riddled with humps and bumps, such as hardware issues, the failure of the 'G1G1' scheme, and the inability to reach the USD 100 price mark, culminating in the resignation of the project's president yesterday. Now, Negroponte, the project's founder and chairman, has stated something that might alienate the project's strongest supporters even further: the OLPC might evolve into using Windows XP only.

Windows 2000 is as good as XP.

Give me any Linux and I make crash without trying.

OLPC should have 2 choices OS, Windows or Mac OSX. Linux sucks. This is the only thing Open Source can't do a good job with is OS. They talk talk how bad Vista is, at less you don't have jump through hoops to do simple thing.
