Well, Google is really one of the biggest non-free software vendors today, so saying yes to google and no to microsoft is very silly. Also, organisations are big. Google makes Google Classroom and Google Apps for Education ("GAFE"), yet still the OSPO gives SL funds. Thanks, Sam On Sun,

If we want a reference device, it needs to be as boring as possible. Let's not repeat the XO situation. The issue with XOs now seems to be that they are all special snowflakes with their special kernel versions. This is my understanding of why we can't update them to the new versions of

Hi Dave, They are XO1s... does Sugar run OK on the XO1? $100 seems steep for an XO1. In the USA, apparently less than $100 yeilds you a "tablet" from "Walmart" (can't vouch for anything... just searched it on the net) [1]. Maybe sell it for less? Or try $100 and see if we need to go

The idea of running Sugar on NaCl is a good idea in my opinion. * The Chrome web store "apps" are downloaded in some form - which is good as even an NaCl sugar would probs be 500mb+ * It would make a good "gateway sugar" for people as it is easy to run on many platforms. * I would think of it

I'm not a big fan of this idea. The SLOBs already seem to have some capital. But they seem to be scared to spend it. How much arguing have we done over the translation co-ordinator position? Something like a translation position would be great, but nobody has seemed to actually do anything

I think that reducing the "interface prejudice" is an interesting question. Changing the theme to use more gradients, transparency, shadows and stuff is very easy; we literally use the same toolkit that powers GNOME's interface. The real question would be if we can test this feature; if
