Excellent news. Sugar on the XO has been somewhat ill-received. Part
of that is simply because it isn't derived from Unix (as are all
modern operating systems). Part of that is because performance on the
XO is a little lacking. But these are surmountable problems, and I
think we need to explore different paradigms for user interfaces.
They won't come from Microsoft (innovator's dilemma).
