The WSJ basically pulverizes the OLPC project in an exquisitely detailed piece laying out its trials and tribulations. Its thesis is that the idea—cheap laptops for everyone—is so damn good that everyone else built their own uber-cheap laptops, thrusting OLPC into cutthroat competition. Result? Countries and school systems are buying cheap computers, just not the XO laptop. That's not so bad. It's the details that are fucking brutal.
