OLPC refocuses on education

It is good to see OLPC is refocusing themselves on an educational project rather than the political aspects of their previous format. At the end of the day it should be schools’ individual choice of what systems they want in their schools and having OLPCs able to run a variety of OS platforms and software, along with their Sugar interface being able to run on a variety of OSs, will be a winner for the education market. It is a simple reflection of the fact that there is very little in reality between different hardware and software platforms and open hardware platforms allowing a choice of OS and software are the way to go. Keep politics out of education always.


Sugar running on the QEMU emulator on Windows 7. Next step: VirtualBox virtualisation of Sugar. And hopefully we will see WinSugar soon enough, because isn’t that supposed to be what Open Source is all about?
