Microsoft Joins Effort for Laptops for Children - New York Times

More on WXP + OLPC

Windows will add a bit to the price of the machines, about $3, the licensing fee Microsoft charges to some developing nations under a program called Unlimited Potential. For those nations that want models that can run both Windows and Linux, the extra hardware required will add another $7 or so to the cost of the machines, Mr. Negroponte said.

The laptops now cost about $200 each, and the project’s goal is to eventually bring the price down to about $100.
