The current Freeware J will run on the XO in character mode from
Terminal. Just download and unpack where you want it to run from.

J uses standard graphics libraries, so there is no trouble running it
in graphic mode in Gnome. Sugarizing would require further work,
particularly if we want to enable collaboration.

Eric Iverson, who inherited Ken's IP, is not willing so far to GPL J.
I can ask whether he is willing to let Roger Sugarize the Freeware
