An anonymous reader writes: OLPC needs high quality software on its machines, but the amount of abuse ladled out over OLPC's developer community is incredible. First they are called "terrorists", now it's "fundamentalists". In a new article, Negroponte suggests firing all of OLPC's existing GNU/Linux developers and replacing them with developers who can somehow make Sugar run on Windows. Any competent manager would realize this fanciful porting effort spells nothing but years of delay; Negroponte apparently exists in a dream world where Microsoft is a competent software company which both cares about the world's children and plays nicely with its smaller "partners". Email Nicholas Negroponte or OLPC's Board of Directors and let them know this time OLPC's gone too far!
