Depends on what you define as 'field'.  If you mean
national/province/whole school XO (or maybe SoaS) deployments.
It will be practically never.  If you mean: meetups, gruops of home
schoolers, Sugar days at the local museum/zoo/etc. i.e.
grassroots events, then it's going to be a lot more common.  In fact,
given how many releases there have been for the
XO and other Sugar delivery methods; I suspect that any meeting of
this type will not be all the same base system.
