  1. Oh, the project is still going. Microsoft is still opposing it because it doesn’t have a Hard Disk Install of WindowsXP

    The absolutely lowest price for XP to install is $99 USD. Microsoft doesn’t support any version of Windows older than XP.

    That leaves the two major software/operating system suppliers as Macintosh and Open Source Software, which is mostly Linuix.

    You could check on the current projects, a good place to start would be

    Which takes you right to a discussion forum.

    Also there’s a great deal of effort toward making applications for blind users.

    The latest versions of Knoppix Linux are geared specifically to that.

    Ubuntu Linux is heavily involved in the One Laptop program.

    One group who are hindering things, and don’t get much attention for fairly obvious reasons, is Department of Homeland InSecurity.

    Their lame pathetic concern is because some of the software is better encryption/decryption than what the U.S. Military uses.

    Since most of the non-Microsoft software doesn’t originate in the United States anyway… that’s a fairly minor stumbling block.

    They’re very frightened that some kid in a country which is not under the U.S. “protection” might get technology which is only approved for people who comply with U.S. government Corporate demands and commands.
