-1, I don't think SL is ready for this.)

The following organizations and government entities may offer grants:

- Intel (Laura: They have facilitated equipment "classmates" to the
somosAzucar Research and Development team, as we use them for testing
Debian-Sugar Distribution as requested by MinEdu PerĂº)

us host a matrix of VirtualBox prebuilt Sugar VMs)

- Samsung Research
- Microsoft (laura -1: No private software funds shall get into our
accounts!) (dave +1: money is money, and almost all the funding sources are
private companies; the Nadella Microsoft is very different to the
Gates/Ballmer era and is about as ethical as Google, Facebook, Intel, or
IBM :) (Laura: don't apply, the requirement from grants providers to
resonate SL values is not negotiable as it stands for the whole learning
model we are proposing.) (Sean -1: No point adding Microsoft or Bill &
Melinda Gates Foundation to this list.) (Dave: You assert your own values
as "SL values", but the observable behaviour of SL and OLPC is not
consistent with them. What do you see as the difference between Google and
Microsoft? Why does SL take Google's money?)
- Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
