Also what company would want to be seen to try and bring down a charity?
Well, none, really, but just to play devil's advocate, didn't a couple of particularly big companies get accused of working to undermine the One Laptop Per Child project? (Am I remembering that correctly?)
I wouldn't use the term "undermine", but OLPC did catch Intel's attention, particularly its use of the lower-powered AMD CPUs. Intel's response was the Classmate PC: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C.....PC_project
Also, a well-known software company provided a version of their operating system that would run on OLPC alongside Sugar: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O.....ot_systems
Thanks - that's what I was thinking of.
