Actually without getting people wirngingling their fists, I'd have to say
that due to Open Suse's policy of basically lending an open hand to anyone
with magical ideas, and then not only allowing you to use their name, but
also their inframagic, from Opensuse Buidle Service to Suse Studio, to
creating yout own web domain hosted under novel, yet without the requirement
to carry novell only soft on it, (linux-for-education.org is a good example)
it has allowed them to kind of leap frog over some of the competition,
though no one likes to admit this. For example in the case of LTSP an easy
visual setp facility was built in, along with trying it out even before
installing, Sugar on kiwi-ltsp was working just fine the last time I took a
look, though that has admittadly beena while. I made back then to include as
many well working fully functional sugar apps on both the sugar only cd and
the whole edu dvd. The whole EDU dvd is truly a work of art, and is where a
lot of the other distros could be at it if werent for politics. But hey....
I'm currently mixxed ina small telepathy based collaborative quiz (
git.sugarlabs.org/projects/pyclic) and some larger telepathy
based/LTSP/Sugar/Wirelss/XMPP based suff... but I'll try and get this email
to push me update sugaresuse..
anyw more questions... just ask..
