New Sugar Web Interface from Paraguay Educa

,----[ Quote ]
| Love it or hate it, the Sugar Learning Platform graphical user interface is 
| strikingly different from any of the usual windowing desktops. With this 
| radical departure from the norm, we've seen much discussion. And while my 
| favorite interpretation is Aquatic Sugar, the new website from Paraguay Educa 
| comes in a close second...    


Get some serious transparency in GNOME and Compiz

,----[ Quote ]
| As I have said repeated, I like eye candy. One of the aspects of eye candy I 
| like more than any other is transparency. With the right Linux desktop there 
| is almost no limit on how you can configure the look and feel of your 
| desktop. And that means you can  have as transparent a desktop as you like.   



Inventing a New Paradigm: SugarLabs and the Sugar UI

,----[ Quote ]
| To say that the technology industry moves quickly would be understated. Firms
| must innovate, adapt and grow, or fail. Two years ago when One Laptop per
| Child began shipping their XO-1 laptop, they defined an industry. People were
| excited not for OLPCâs mission, which always seemed to be a footnote, but for
| a diminutive inexpensive laptop. Often, the laptop was stated to include a
| custom distribution of Linux called Sugar that was built to help kids learn.
| But Sugar is more than just a Linux distro.


Sugar on a Stick brings sweet taste of Linux to classrooms

,----[ Quote ]
| Sugar Labs has announced the first official release of Sugar on a Stick, a
| Linux-based learning environment that can boot from a USB memory stick. The
| Sugar platform, which originally emerged from the One Laptop Per Child
| project, could soon arrive in classrooms.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
