We all know how much Jobs likes the education market, so according to the Wall Street Journal he did a very
magnanimous thing and offered OS X up to Nicholas
Negroponte for his $100 laptop for developing
nations. But not even bothering to discount the vast technical difficulties with getting OS X to run on this kind of
machine, Negroponte and his team apparently canned the whole idea because OS X is a closed-source OS, and they believed
it fundamental to their system to use only totally open, completely modifiable software. Yep, this all sounds about
right to us. Jobs gets positive PR, Negroponte & Co. get to up their cred; win-win all around!
