Windows on OLPC

Microsoft is working on adapting XP to run on OLPC. There's an interesting post about what's involved technically - having XP boot from flash etc - at http://blogs.technet.com/jamesu/archive/2007/12/05/olpc-in-the-news-part-2.aspx, which also has a line that made me laugh and then wonder.
"We are not expecting K-6 school children to access the source code and do their own programming in the event they have to fix a problem in the computer."
