,----[ Quote ]
| You may know about One Laptop per Child (OLPC), Sugar, and the many projects
| inspired by this initiative. You may not know Edward Mokurai Cherlin or of
| his plans for OLPC: Education, economic development, global commerce, all in
| an environmentally friendly, fair-trade context -- plus ending poverty at a
| profit. All in less than 40 minutes of conversation.

What do Free and Open Source Software Leaders Think of Microsoft?

,----[ Quote ]
| "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."
