LXer: MIT Professor Dismisses Laptop Criticism

Published at LXer:

BOSTON - The Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor who hopes to distribute $100 laptops to the world's children dismissed recent criticisms Tuesday and said his project could begin distributing the computers by early next year. Kicking off the LinuxWorld conference in Boston, Nicholas Negroponte said he was undeterred by skepticism from two of the leading forces in computing, Intel Corp. and Microsoft Corp. "When you have both Intel and Microsoft on your case, you know you're doing something right," Negroponte said, prompting applause from the audience of several hundred open-source software devotees.
