Microsoft working on XP for the US$100 laptop
Microsoft is reportedly working on running a stripped down version of Windows XP to run on the One Laptop Per Child Foundation's "US$100 laptop".
The ruggedized low-cost laptops, targeted at schoolchildren in developing nations, run on both free and open source software. The machines come with an OS which uses elements of Red Hat's Fedora Core 6 and includes a browser built on XULRunner, the run-time environment used by Firefox.
Now, Microsoft is apparently trying to develop its own proprietary OS for the laptop, using a modified version of XP.
