LXer: Obama to OLPC American Schools with XO-1.5's!!!

Published at LXer:

In a surprise declaration, I am still trying to process, President Barack Obama has announced a massive deployment of XO laptops to every public school student in America - to both improve education and stimulate the American economy. While that's game-changing just in itself, here's the real kicker - these will be XO-1.5's made by Intel & Dell!

[I think this is great, if it actually happens.. - Scott]

You can bet your last dollar that Microsoft will spend whatever it takes to make sure those things run Windows. I'm sure they've got a few billion lobbyists lined up ready to make all sorts of "campaign donations"
