Yes, that's true - I _want_ to see every child in third world countries with a laptop, but I also want to see the cure to AIDS, cancer, etc.

It will be great if the project succeeds, but it's absorbing huge amounts of money - if it fails, think of what that money could have been used for. If the money were _really_ well spent, the children of third world countries might not live in third world countries any more!

It's a good project, but only if it works<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:-)
