OLPC says it has no Windows Plans

Last week we posted a story that the kids laptop from OLPC will run Windows. A week later OLPC says that there are actually no Windows plans in place.

Microsoft is one of the 1,500 accepted developers in the OLPC developer program. It would be up to them at the moment to make Windows run on the XO laptop. "We are a free and open-source shop. We have no one from OLPC working with Microsoft on developing a Windows platform for the XO. MS doesn't get any special treatment from OLPC," President of Software and Content at OLPC, Bender told Ars Technica.
