While preventing direct lock-in was enough to keep me from screaming  
bloody murder, behind the scenes I kept agitating furiously for a  
solution that allowed actual dual-boot. Probably out of sheer  
annoyance and an overwhelming desire to just make me shut up already,  
everyone involved eventually conceded. Dual-boot became the plan of  
record at OLPC and MS, and actual technical work began on this  
approach before I left.
