"One Laptop Per Child" loses a partner

Intel has withdrawn its funding and technical help from "One Laptop Per Child" project due to "philosophical" differences.
"OLPC had asked Intel to end our support for non-OLPC platforms, including the Classmate PC, and to focus on the OLPC platform exclusively, At the end of the day, we decided we couldn't accommodate that request. " said Intel spokesman Chuck Mulloy (to BBC)
Intel joined with this project in July 2007 and worked on OLPC or OX laptop. OLPC is good initiative to make contribution on poor children education and increase e-literacy in developing countries.
