Thumbs up Sugar Labs releases "Sugar on a Stick" OS!! - 06-24-2009, 11:20 PM

Sugar Labs, the company behind the Sugar Open Source Operating System for the One Laptop per Child initiative, has released a copy of their "Sugar on a Stick" Operating system for free download. You can download it and find instructions for booting & running it from a USB Flash Drive here: Downloads - Sugar Labs

More info on the One Laptop per Child program: The OLPC Wiki - OLPC

I've already downloaded and booted it from a Flash Drive, and it works. I don't have networking or mic capabilities yet, but I don't know the OS well enough to know if I can toy with settings (or if there even are settings to toy with!).

A fun experiment so far to say the least, and all done without interrupting the existing OS X installation I have running on my DM9.

Dell Mini 9 | 1.6 Intel Atom | OS X 10.6.2 via NetbookInstaller 0.8.3| 32GB STEC | 2GB RAM | Bluetooth | 1.3 Webcam |
