I'm certainly no expert, but this Computerworld headline surprised me:

"OLPC developing dual-boot Windows, Linux OS for laptops"

Here's an excerpt:

Microsoft has embraced the open-source community over the past few years in 
a very different way than before, Negroponte said. "And that really helps, 
because it's become a little bit less religious than it was a few years ago 
and that's really good. In the end, I think, the more people that have 
software and hardware out there, the better."

As for me, I must confess I find this news somewhat depressing...

Cheers & enjoy,
