Greetings all, Here in OLPC Afghanistan we require to impose some restrictions on network detection of XOs: 1. We would like to restrict the XOs to only connect to the school network. Due to the sensitivity of the culture here we don not want to allow kids to connect to open networks/Internet.

I'm in the same situation (well, I will be when I get my macbook back). I do see a lot of talk towards making Sugar and activities behave more like standard applications. Perhaps Sugar will work on OS X natively some day. 2009/5/27 Gary C Martin g...@garycmartin.com: Hi Asaf, On 27 May 2009,

For both Webified and Karma, Gears support in Browse is necessary (or at least preferred), but AFAIK there is currently no strategy to get it running. Since Browse uses xulrunner, it should be possible to use the Firefox version of Gears, with possible modifications. However, I could not find any
