Everything's better on a stick

Ryan Paul reports on the first official release of the Sugar educational software platform for removable media. Sugar was the Linux-derived OS distributed with the first generation of XO computers. With the release of Sugar on a Stick (SoaS), now it is the case that
When Sugar runs from a memory stick, the user's files can be stored directly on the device. This completely portable and self-contained approach makes it possible for students to use at school and at home. It also makes it easy for schools to repurpose existing computers and get them up and running with the Sugar learning environment with minimal difficulty and investment.
