And a whole new market segment was born.

The OLPC rates amongst the most influential PC design along with the
ZX80, the last "first" computer to cost under 100, or
BBC Model B - the best 8-bit micro with the best basic
IBM PC - the first business PC
Commodore Pet - first off the shelf commercial PC

OLPC has spawned a new market of ultra-inexpensive laptops, and at the
same time, has finally provided the unique set of market drivers which
will enable Linux to flourish in a mass-market desktop-like device.
