Sugar Wins! Nobody Buying Windows XO Laptops

,----[ Quote ]
| It was almost exactly one year ago that Nicholas Negroponte announced an
| agreement between OLPC and Microsoft to bring Windows XP to the XO-1 to great
| turmoil. I vividly remember the late-night flood of e-mails and IRC chats
| where everyone was trying to figure out just what that announcement really
| meant.
| [...]
| I've been wondering about what ever happened to these Windows XP-based OLPC
| trials. I haven't really heard anything about them in quite some time. Now
| more recently I've asked around and found there is a good reason why I
| haven't seen anything: countries are choosing Sugar over Windows XP for their
| XO deployments.
