    ""Frankly I'm shocked to see these guys having problems. I mean, a brand new
    hardware design, a new screen technology, a customized Linux operating
    system, a one-off user interface, and the customers are the poorest nations
    in the world, and they'll be paying with government money which means they
    have to get politicians to vote on orders, and they'll have to place huge
    orders with no pilot programs, and the kids will have these things tossed in
    their laps and be expected to write code and do all their own maintenance,
    and the whole project will be run by woolly academics who have never even
    worked in a real company let alone run one. What could possibly go wrong?""

    And what has philanthropist Bill Gates contributed to the project -
    stuff all, no, worse than that, his contributions have been negative.
    He sees it as a threat to Micro$oft.
