Windows To Run on OLPC Laptop

Microsoft wants to make its Windows operating system available on the One Laptop per Child notebook computers, OLPC chairman Nicholas Negroponte said at the NetEvents conference in Hong Kong on Saturday. “I have known Bill Gates his entire adult life. We talk, we meet one-on-one, we discuss this project,” said Negroponte, vnunet.com can reveal. “We put in an SD slot in the machine just for Bill. We didn’t need it but the OLPC machines are at Microsoft right now, getting Windows put on them.”
