"...putting together the resources which can handle pushing an update to millions of laptops at the same time might still be a challenge."
This is getting ridiculous. One of the main problems in the poor areas where the OLPC will be used is that there is NO COMMUNICATION INFRASTRUCTURE WHATSOEVER: no telephone, no satellital communication, no cell phones, NOTHING. So millions of laptops running in poor areas from third world countries will not try to contact a cluster of high-performance servers running at MIT.
The OLPC advocates need a reality check.
