Microsoft is serious about getting Windows XP to work on One Laptop Per Child’s low-cost laptop, but the company still isn’t sure it will be able to make a go of it.
However, there are plenty of technical hurdles, he said. One of the biggest is the fact that the XO has no hard drive and only 1GB of built-in memory. The company concluded it needed at least 2GB of memory just for Windows and Office, so it convinced the OLPC folks to include an SD slot on the laptop’s motherboard.
