OLPC has joined Microsoft XP!

OLPC has just announced that they will be using Microsoft XP operating system on their $100 laptops. This is ridiculous and does go completely against their original core values.

Their excuse is that they are not selling enough units and some countries are requiring Windows platform.

Screw them, focus on your core value.
