If the code to whatever system controller ends up being used for the 
OLPC is free and open it will help that device get into and enable more 
fully open laptops, tablets and handhelds to be produced.

There is usually is not much to the code, a few of KB's of routines to 
handle the indicator LED's, power & lid switches, temperature 
management, and battery charging.
