Could the next laptop to emerge from the OLPC
organization be powered by Intel chips? That's the suggestion of OLPC News
, which sees the FAQ attached to Intel's announcement of joining the board at OLPC
as a sign that Intel's chips could work their way into the XO-2. At the very least, the servers that support the $100 XO PCs will be Intel based: quoting from the FAQ, it says that "OLPC is planning to add Intel Xeon processor based servers to their product offerings." Intel is also taking steps to develop a system board for the next gen XO, although all designs are subject to OLPC approval. Seems like OLPC's gone full circle from "Intel should be ashamed of itself
" to "thank you Intel!"
