I hadn't looked closely enough to see the detailed licensing. But I'd seen the news stories about Google cease-and-desists to the guys making improved free versions. Is a useful fully-free version readily available, as a practical option? (This is mostly off-topic for OLPC, unless there's a plan to try Android on XO hardware, which might be amusing. 20,000 apps and an active developer base might be an attraction, versus the hundred or two Sugar apps.)
