I really admire your persistence. Fedora and OLPC are working on a
traditional GNOME desktop for the XO and I'm sure they would
appreciate your contributions:

your opinion about Sugar over and over anymore, and you will have more
time to contribute useful code for the kids.

Then, we will just see who does better.
