Christopher Dawson reports that Ivan Krstić has an angry rant about OLPC, especially about running Windows on XO.
What strikes me is the following quote:
In fact, I quit when Nicholas told me — and not just me — that learning was never part of the mission. The mission was, in his mind, always getting as many laptops as possible out there…
I agree. So far, I have not seen any spectacular education/learning software developed on XO yet. (Correct me if I am wrong and point me some examples if you can.)
Christopher is right that no matter what has happened, XO has started an industrial wide for low cost market.
