Intel tried to gag Nicholas Negroponte. Intel knows all too well what it schemed to do with Microsoft (some info below).
"Intel: doing the dirty on OLPC
Intel’s agreement with the OLPC Foundation included a ‘non disparagement’
clause, under which Intel and One Laptop promised not to criticize each other,
according to Nicholas Negroponte in the latest article in the Wall Street
Still Intel tactics have violated that repeatedly to kill OLPC efforts in
Nigeria, Libya, Pakistan, India, China and Intel is also still trying to pull
those tactics in Mexico, Brazil.
This is simply disgracefull of Intel, scandalous.
But Negroponte has signed an agreement saying that he is not allowed to
criticize Intel, so he is not allowed to talk about these shameless tactics even
though Intel is the one violating the agreement.
So only independent voices on the Internet can get those messages of truth out
about Intel’s tactics.
In Nigeria, Intel came and donated 3000 laptops to counter OLPC efforts, then
sells 17 thousand Classmates to Nigeria at a loss.
Then Microsoft corrupted Nigerian officials with 400 thousand dollars to install
Windows XP on those instead of Mandriva Linux."
Going forward, Tux Machines does not have ads. Instead it relies on readers' support and is run as a public service.
