New article at

I just published an article that I co-authored with the one and only Bernardo Innocenti about why putting Windows XO XP on the OLPC XO laptop isn't a good idea. We touch upon topics such as translation, localization, long-term support, collaboration and power-management.

We conclude:
"In our opinion an open-source operating system on the XO offers a vast array of advantages compared to any proprietary solution. Some of these advantages might not be so visible at the moment but in the long run they're going to make a huge difference."
Will be interesting to see what kind of comments people leave below that story...

On a related note, I'm already in the brainstorming phase for my next comment for and hope to have it finished by the end of the week.
