Why Microsoft and Intel tried to kill the XO $100 laptop - Times Online
Where does Murdock find people who write this type of stuff:
MIT is a city within a city consisting of the campus but also the penumbra of gigantic, architecturally eccentric buildings in which live the high-tech companies that graze on the institute’s talent. Around Kendall Square, people shuffle along the streets lost in thought. In the cafes they read and write notes on yellow legal pads.

Have you ever been on campus?
I haven’t been since ~1991. Nice place. Wish I’d applied, but likely wouldn’t’ve met my wife had I done so. The road not travelled and all of that.
Is anyone even remotely surprised that microsoft did not want to see millions of laptops with linux pre-installed distributed for next-to-nothing in the developing world? Or that Intel did not want to see AMD achieve runaway success with Geode?
