Working with OLPC people is not really easy (do you see GCompris on the 
machines you have access to?)
Porting Edu apps to Sugar seems very difficult, a rewrite seems a better 
I was under the impression the OLPC is in difficulty due to internal politics 
and to Microsoft stepping in. When there is Windows on the OLPC there is also 
our apps.

For Sugar, I don't think we have any manpower.


PS : I believe more on Netbooks and CLassmayte PCs and Edu distros than in 
OLPC in terms of deploying our software.
