1) OLPC is difficult to emulate (only a Fedora-based machine can succeed)
2) OLPC is still very unstable: I suceeded to build sugar and the environment 
once but then the built failed the next times.
3) kdeedu depends on Qt and kdelibs and those have not been ported on sugar as 
far as I know. When this is done, getting kdeedu apps will be peanuts 
probably ;)

What is your link with the OLPC project? Personally I would feel it good to 
get something started to work on that direction (that's why I emulated it at 
home) but this needs a group of people, preferably not involved too much in 
other things (i.e. I can participate but won't be too active).

So if you're interested in setting up something, I'll help you!
