Not to make this discussion more complicated, but ...

Squeak/Etoys runs on everything whether Sugar or not, runs in the browser or as a standalone, and a Squeak "project" is completely independent of any environment except Squeak.

Both Etoys and Scratch (and many other apps) are written entirely in Squeak (which is an open source version of Smalltalk-80 with a comprehensive library).

>>OK, the consensus is Python so far.  Can he do that strictly on XOs? How does he package it to share as an Activity?  Can he do it on a Mac or PC and then package it for Sugar?  I think he would really like to do it all on the XO. Is this possible? How does it get from terminal mode to being a regular Activity?
