LXer: XP meets XO: Will Linux get an equal shot?

Published at LXer:

On the surface, a little choice isnít going to kill anybody. In fact, choice is good. And if some poor kids can get a laptop, learn a bit and be exposed to the world I donít care about the operating system. But hereís what gives me pause about XP coming to the XO (statement, Techmeme): Thereís no way Linux will get an equal shake on OLPCís XO. In fact, I reckon that more XO units will ship with XP than Linux in the not too distant future. Why? Governments are making the buying decisions. Not kids.
