I think that Sugar has a-ways to go before it can be considered a panacaea. If you guys think it's legitimately something that educators in the US will go for as a Desktop OS for the classroom, we could certainly think about repackaging it for broader use.

The nice thing about the OLPC, of course, is that the hardware profile is 100% known -- which allows the developers to optimize Sugar for the OLPC. That said, it certainly runs on other platforms -- my laptop running FC6, for instance.
