I’m not surprised of the reactions of big companies like Intel and Microsoft tried/trying to kill the OLPC movement or tried to hijack the idea and try to turn it into something else to protect their interests and turn up a profit, but I am surprised that Microsoft ended up selling Windows XP for 3 US$ per computer for the OLPC XO machines. Thats one helluva move considering microsoft never sells anything cheap.

Intel & Microsoft tred to kill the XO
