OLPC and Microsoft hook up


Microsoft has started playing nice with the non-profit OLPC (one laptop per child) who plan on providing $100 laptops to schools in developing countries.

In a test bed starting month the laptops will be available as a dual boot with both the current “sugar” operating system and Windows XP/office. How is this possible on a machine with just a 1GB flash memory? Easy: they cheat by putting XP on a 2GB SD card.
