I am not sure this is on topic for this list, if not  I would 
appreciate a pointer to another place...

I was upset to have missed an opportunity to get an xo in the g1g1 
activity last year - I am in the UK. Subsequently, when the project 
veered towards windows I would not have wanted to support it an any 
way. Lately there have been reports in the online press that Amazon 
might be handling a new g1g1 activity, with a comment which I found 
curious, that the machines would be dual boot, XO, XP.

The latest rumour seen here from Glyn Moody whom I greatly respect
asserts XO but no dual boot, which would be consistent with the 
original hardware.

I would be interested to have an original  type xo for several reasons 
if they become available, but I would not want to be very near to a 
microsoft presence at all.

I would like to hear comments about this, including informed guesses(!)
