A brief look at Sugar
Subject: General Tech | April 18, 2007 - 11:41 AM | Jeremy Hellstrom
Phoronix managed to get a quick look at a beta of the Linux based OS, Sugar, that will be on the $100 laptops the OLPC plans to distribute. There wasn't enough for them to do a full review, but the screenshots give you an idea what this ... rather unique ... distro might look like.
"We've heard a lot about the OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) project, which aims to provide a $100 laptop for developing
nations, and we've heard a bit about its Sugar interface and other technical abilities, but recently we spent the time with
QEMU and a test build of the OLPC XO operating system (Fedora based) to see how it really shapes up."
