Microsoft Confirms Plans for Windows XP on OLPC

Inside a seemingly ho-hum press release about Microsoft supporting flash-based computing, Microsoft snuck in official confirmation that they will begin field trials of Windows XP on One Laptop per Child's XO device in the first half of 2008, with the goal of having it be available for government purchase in the second-half of 2008.

A couple names I think should be considered:

  • XOXP
  • XPXO
  • XP4XO

I would think that Microsoft would choose to make a bigger deal about this. But I guess since they're targeting governments and not consumers, they don't have to. It still should have had its own press release, though.



  • Interesting point at
