4m orders for $100 laptop

It finally looks as though the One Laptop Per Child project is finally taking off. According to DesktopLinux.com, four countries - Argentina, Brazil, Nigeria, and Thailand - have committed to orders of a million units each of Nicholas Negroponte's laptop for the developing world. The OLPC project has previously stated that it wants at least 5 million orders before it begins manufacturing the systems in earnest, which leaves only one major buyer left to go before the concept becomes reality.
