LXer: Linux Too Bloated for $100 Laptop?

Published at LXer:

Venture capitalist and MIT Media Lab founder Nicholas Negroponte, the man behind the $100 laptop, thinks Linux is bloated and needs to slim down. He has “criticized the software industry, including those building Linux, for churning out bloatware that slows down even the fastest PCs.” He thinks Linux is not a viable option to choose when selecting an operating system for his $100 laptop to run on.
