But the OLPC is one of the most free computer projects ever undertaken. What if the GPLv3 can't be used for its low-level (read: important) parts? Isn't that a pretty bad sign?
This appears to be one situation where DRM can actually be a good thing. Like a knife or a car or a programming language, it's all just technology. People will use it for good and they will use it for bad.
That's why the FSF's "DRM is EVIL!!" stance is so foreign to me. It's like calling gunpowder evil.
