[Yes! :-)]

Sorry.  It was a general response to giving SoaS a more separate
identity.  (Which I think
is a good thing.)   At the same time, there seems to be a lack of
consensus of what
SoaS actually is or what it's goals (use cases) should be.   And
therefore what such an identity would be.  It's possible that those
questions will only be answered after SoaS (and the core people
involved in its creation) have a place to discuss this without
flooding the people who don't care.

That's my question.  So far Strawberry (and it's variants, successors)
is the only LiveUSB environment that I know of that makes Sugar the
default UI   If someone takes any of a number of other LiveUSB
environments and makes Sugar the default, will that be SoaS (but not
Maybe Sugoppix? :-)

I hope that I have clarified somewhat.
