Sugar on a Stick v2 brings OLPC interface to any netbook

,----[ Quote ]
| Sugar OS is the custom Linux user interface 
| designed for the OLPC XO Laptop. Sugar on a 
| Stick is a project that lets you run Sugar 
| from a USB flash drive, no XO laptop 
| required. I first checked out Sugar on a 
| Stick earlier this year, when it was still a 
| bit rough around the edges. But at the 
| Netbook World Summit in Paris today, Sugar 
| Labs CEO Walter Bender introduces Sugar on a 
| Stick version 2.0.


Building the Google smartbook dream machine

,----[ Quote ]
| The netbook promises convenience and 
| capability in a small, lightweight, and 
| generally inexpensive package, and the 
| concept of a smartbook goes even further: a 
| handy-dandy combination of smartphone and 
| notebook. Alas, most netbook offerings come 
| burdened with a full-blown Windows operating 
| system, which runs slowly on performance-
| limited netbook hardware and saps battery 
| life. And Windows is not exactly smartphone-
| oriented.



Fedora devs keeping OLPC sweet with Sugar

,----[ Quote ]
| Developer Sebastian Dzialias (who was also
| in the OLPC session), said that a new
| version of Sugar on a Stick was coming this
| Tuesday - codenamed Blueberry.  It's a good
| thing too, the promise of the XO and its
| desktop, deserves better than to end up in
| a landfill.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
