,----[ Quote ]
| After a few days on Remix I decided I 
| wanted to go back to the regular Ubuntu 
| Gnome desktop and so when I got home I 
| downloaded and installed Ubuntu 9.10 
| âKarmic Koala.â Thereâs nothing wrong with 
| Remix, itâs just that Iâm used to the 
| regular desktop and I decided the screen 
| was large enough to support it.

| âOoo4Kidsâ or Open Office for Children brings
| the power of word-processing, spreadsheets,

| With all of the Activities, Sugar users can
| share their work, locally in a classroom or
| globally, from Bangkok to Bogotà to Berlin.
| A new version of Sugar has just been released:
| Sugar on a Stick v2 Blueberry. Available for
| download, Sugar on a Stick can be loaded onto
| any ordinary 1Gb or greater flash drive to
| reboot any PC, netbook or recent Mac directly
| into the child-friendly Sugar environment
| without touching the existing installation.
| Sugar is also available for GNU/Linux
| distributions, runs under virtualization on
| Windows and Apple OS X, and features built-in
| classroom collaboration and automatic backup
| to a Journal.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
