Teaching children to use Windows is like teaching them to smoke tobacco—in a world where only one company sells tobacco.

And a comment from a visitor

While software freedom is important for everyone, it’s especially important for the target audience of the OLPC project. This audience consists of relatively poor children in developing countries.

While that first hit of Windows may be free, you can be sure that the next hit won’t be, and these kids (and their families) are not in a good position to be spending money on new software.
