OLPC Moves To Windows

I know the news of the OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) shipping with Windows last November would've come as a shock to most of you because you wouldn't expect to wake up one morning and read it in the paper - it would seem too much like a prank somebody was playing on you.

OLPC now goes a step further by pulling out of the Sugar project and cutting down on staffing. However, on the positive side, the OLPC is also aiming at a model where it can distribute laptops for free - the "$0 laptop"! You can find a statement by Nicholas Negropon here.
