I am not too sure the best platform is Sugar. I am not the most educated as to the workings of sugar, so maybe I am talking out of my realm here. But Sugar looked to be prepackaged with certain apps and functionality. I would still want to be able to customize my application offerings for deployment instead of using a predetermined application set and I may also want to tweak the interface to fit our users needs. But maybe sugar isn't as flat as it looked to me at first.
You could think of Sugar as a desktop environment like KDE or GNOME (architecturally, it is sort of a cousin to GNOME). There is more to it than that, but it'll do for starters. It should be possible (in the future) to allow a student to chose whether to log into GNOME or Sugar on a LTSP terminal. It also should be possible to allow them to run Sugar as an application within their regular GNOME session, in full screen or windowed mode. Sugar is extensible through its own packaging system. And it is certainly not flat; if it fails, it will be because they're trying to go too deep. --Tom _______________________________________________ Fedora-education-list mailing list Fedora-education-list@xxxxxxxxxx http://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-education-list
