Intel, OLPC Make Peace

Intel, `$100 Laptop' Project Make Peace

As much as I'd choose AMD over Intel... competition is always a good thing.

I can just imagine the dirty little deals that had to go on behind the scenes for this to happen, though -- obviously, Intel wanted in, and they probably agreed not to distribute their "Classmate PC" in the same markets as the OLPC (they were going to do it at a loss, too, just so that they could kill the OLPC).

Well, if it can get the cost of it down, then go for it -- the damn price of the OLPC has crept up to $175 recently, and things are looking grim.
