Potor's Journal: Intel backs out of OLPC

Journal by Potor
The BBC is reporting that Intel is pulling out of the OLPC program. Editorially, the Beeb sees this as a big blow to the program, but I wonder. Not only is Intel a late-comer to OLPC, but it also launched a competing product. Although it does represent a loss of funds and perhaps some technological support, it also weakens the Wintel aspect of the machine and stresses the philosophical and philanthropic goals of OLPC. And I assume that Negroponte can function perfectly well with AMD, who will now presumably have a lock on this market and the goodwill it generates.
