Microsoft Says "NO" To Dual Boot OLPC XO Laptops

News com is reporting that Microsoft put stops on talk of a dual-boot XO laptop after OLPC chairman and founder Nick Negroponte told IDG News Service Wednesday that the two organizations are working on such a project. "While we have investigated the possibility in the past, Microsoft is not developing dual-boot Windows XP support for One Laptop Per Child's XO laptop," a Microsoft representative said in a statement Thursday.
Dual Boot Support development? oxymoron I would say. I have been dual, tripple booting systems for years before I settled of VMware, both PC and Apple hardware I run. Looks like M$ just being big! The OLPC might ship with both operating systems, Linux and Microsoft XP.
Here is the article.
