Is $100 laptop project flawed?

Recently there was a lot of news about $100 laptop developed by a Professor in MIT.

However recently there has been negative views about its success, as CNET News site says:

"The real reason that this won't be successful is a misunderstanding of the history of technology. They are looking to introduce a nonstandard, untested platform...which they will only sell to governments," he said. "The decision to buy will be made by politicians who are elected every five years, and politicians generally don't take the decision to risk their political future on nonstandard technology."
