| "Microsoft suborned the One Laptop Per Child project, converting it into a
| massive Windows training campaign. The project says it is giving the
| purchasing governments 'more choice' by supporting Windows as well as
| GNU/Linux, but those governments will tend to choose Windows by default. In
| some countries, people will campaign to prevent that. If these campaigns
| succeed, the OLPC project may yet make a positive contribution to the world.
| Otherwise, it will do overall harm."
