Bruce's opinion is biased and distorted on this issue. He flipped out after the M$ engineers were around and one of the OLPC presented their side of the story. If you check the posting he's done below the article, he's completely missed the point.


Great quote from OLPC:
"To claim we should prohibit XO customers from running XP in the
interest of freedom is to claim everyone should be free to make a
choice — as long as it’s a choice we agree with."

"...it was brilliant, there was three up against a thousand, and boy, did we give those three heaps!"
