SugarLabs: Sugar-sweet or Sugar-coated?

,----[ Quote ]
| It's engineering goals call for a (Linux) 
| OS and hardware-agnostic platform, with 
| transparent, free and readily accessible 
| and modifiable code that can be also easily 
| shared among users. The normal user has 
| absolute control over the Sugar part but

| malicious activities.


Jolicloud Steps Up Its Game As Pre-Launch Excitement For Chrome OS Builds

| In a couple of hours, Google is going to

| operating system Chrome OS at an event in 
| Mountain View that will most likely be 
| covered from start to finish by TechCrunch 
| writers (and then some) as well as a slew 
| of other media outlets. Jolicloud, that 
| other OS for netbooks that is completely 
| built for people who live and work on the

| been running fine on my own netbook for the 
| past couple of months.

| with a normal desktop or laptop in mind but
| one desktop was made with small screen and
| children in mind.

| You've heard the talk about the XO-1.5 laptop having a dual boot
| of Gnome and Sugar user interfaces on the Fedora 11 core. You've

| it would be to jump back and forth between the two.
