So the Intel/OLPC partnership is over. Intel partnered with One Laptop Per Child to co create an Intel chipped XO.

Unfortunately at the same time Intel was pushing the classmate laptop, even to the point of running the XO down to existing OLPC customers,

Why did Intel bother – either commit to a partnership and see it through or don’t – their half/half strategy was nonsensical and caused pain for all concerned.

The question now is where to for OLPC?
