Negroponte: Sugar OS was OLPC’s biggest mistake
Posted by: Justina Spencer
The netbook revolution has its roots in the One Laptop Per Child project. OLPC founder Nicholas Negroponte envisioned getting cheap, educational, and open source laptops into the hands of millions of children around the world. Things haven’t really worked out that way. Four years after the project begun, only 900,000 OLPC XO Laptops have been distributed to children. That’s not nothing, but it’s a drop in the bucket when compared with the tens of millions of low cost netbooks selling in developed and developing nations alike.
