Sugar OS Demo

by Luke Kenneth Casson Leighton

This is a quick - and very honest - demonstration of the Sugar OS of OLPC fame running on an EOMA68-A20 Computer Card.

Thank you to Lilyana, my seven-year-old daughter, for her honest impressions of running Sugar for the first time on an EOMA68-A20. We had downloaded the Fedora 24 "Sugar" spin two days ago: this is only the second time that we’d started it up. Lilyana wanted to use the painting program but it would not start, so we tried Turtle instead, which worked fine. Calculator and several others were also tested the day before, and worked fine. This looks very much like a work-in-progress but it is good to see that after a decade the OLPC’s Sugar OS is still going. We’re going to reach out to the Fedora OLPC team to find out more.
