The XO Laptop (or the OLPC, whatever you want to call it) will now run Windows, giving children around the world the opportunity to dislike Microsoft as much as we do. I think we alluded to the sort of problems they’ll have in last week’s Sweater Friends. OLPC founder Nicholas Negroponte said the use of Windows “enhances [its] ability” to “transform education,” one BSOD at a time.

I don’t know, as a tech guy I’m supposed to applaud the program—hooray, computers in the third world—but I’m also supposed to hate M$. I really am torn.
