One More Comment on OLPC & Intel

It seems pretty clear to me that Intel sells more chips if Classmate and OLPC are selling to the developing world, even if only some of the OLPC's have Intel chips, compared to how many Classmates they sell if OLPC fails completely and taints the entire idea of giving cheap laptops to kids in the developing world.

Especially since giving those kids a standard Linux or Windows desktop is a much worse idea than giving them an environment designed around their needs.
