Thank you. I'll install the iso and try it later today.

> Hello everyone,
> I'm Rubén Rodríguez, from Spain. I'm the main developer of Trisquel
> GNU/Linux, a fully free distro endorsed by the FSF. We are working on a
> Sugar powered live/installable system using Trisquel, which was briefly
> introduced during the FSF Software Freedom Day event. Many thanks to
> Aleksey Lim and all the other folks who are helping us with this.
> Our system is similar to SoaS, but not just intended for usb drives. It
> can be used in that way (even with persistent user data) but it can also
> be installed in a PC or be loaded via LTSP using diskless PC's or thin
> clients. We do not want to replace existing projects, but to provide a
> fully libre Sugar environment while improving our educational software.
> We are building this system on top of Trisquel Edu 2.2, which is our
> educational operating system based on Ubuntu LTS. It will be our
> recommended platform for big deployments, either using LTSP servers or
> standalone installations, as it is very stable and supported. As for the
> live usb soas-like functionality, we will develop a version using the
> latest Trisquel 3.0 core, which is based on the latest Ubuntu release.
> This way we would have even better hardware support and newer libraries.
> If you want to give our beta a try, you can find it at:
> http://devel.trisquel.info/trisquel-sugar_2.2.1-beta_i686.iso
> As it is still a work in progress, it must be tested in a computer wired
> to a router serving dhcp, or it will fail to load the user session.
> We will release a new beta based on Trisquel 3.0 in a few days.
> We hope you find our project interesting, as we are really looking
> forward to get involved in your wonderful community.
> Regards,
> Rubén
