Intel's processors kinda suck. I'm glad they're using AMD.
I posted a bit of a rant about this on my blog when I heard about it. A lot of the other small laptop deals that are sprouting up aren't the kind of charity-focused venture that OLPC is -- they're for profit, and they're probably not going to be executed with the same kind of grace and attention to detail. I think that it goes beyond even greed to try to undercut a beautifully executed, charitable program with a for-profit venture.
