OLPC: one virus per child

Filed under
OLPC

It's taken a remarkably short time for the One Laptop Per Child project to change from positioning itself as the saviour of children in developing countries to becoming a toady for Microsoft.

In an interview with Business Week recently, Nicholas Negroponte, the founder of the project, is quoted as saying that the organisation now needs to be managed "more like Microsoft."

And in keeping with this, this modern-day Moses has also said, according to OLPCNews , that Microsoft and the OLPC are in discussion on how to release Windows XP for the XO, the laptop, which the project claims, will "provide children around the world with new opportunities to explore, experiment, and express themselves."

Only this time, it will be Windows viruses. And worms. Plus spyware, scumware, adware and malware. Way to go, Nicholas.
