The issue is the conflicting Negroponte quotes:

Windows on XO "has not only been happening with our consent, but (also
our) collaboration. Some of the first engineering models from any
given build go to them," Negroponte said.

Negroponte says that a Windows operating system is in the process of
being fine-tuned on the XO as we speak. "Microsoft and OLPC are in
discussion on how to release it, as well as how to announce," he said.
Negroponte added that the Windows operating system should be available
on the XO in less than 60 days.

So, who knows?
