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!"
