Walter Bender might be disappointed in the OLPC's defection to Windows XP, but the former head of Sugar OS development isn't sitting still: he's already founded Sugar Labs, and early word is that he's in preliminary discussions with four ultra-low-cost laptop makers to ship the kid-friendly operating system on their machines soon. Bender's already said he's interested in working with Intel and Pixel Qi, and he's mentioned ASUS in passing, but no names are being confirmed, so we'll see where this leads -- Bender seems pretty driven to get Sugar out there.
