Bill Gates mocks MIT's $100 laptop project
Big Bill didn’t have much good to say about MIT’s 100 dollar laptop at the Microsoft Government Leaders forum today. One might ask why Bill gives a a damn about this project given that he makes his money from software. It doesn’t take too much thinking to realise that its pretty hard to spend $300+ on a office suite that is going to run on a $100 PC.
The final ignominy for Bill is that these upstarts at Google and MIT insist on putting a Linux O/S on the thing so he can’t flog Microsoft Office even if he wanted too….
