| My first impression was how incredibly easy it
| is to obtain and install on your memory stick.
| Fedora has released a flash installation tool
| that handles downloading and imaging the flash
| drive on Windows systems. (There are
| installation instructions for other operating
| systems as well.) Not only is this tool
| available for use to install Sugar on a Stick,
| but you can also test drive other Fedora Linux
| distributions. The tool also allows you to
| partition off some space to save your documents
| to when in the Linux environment. Keep in mind
| that when you run this utility you will wipe
| anything on the memory stick.

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

| a landfill.
