Flash is not the best option to develop games for the XO.  The XO does
include something call Gnash, which supports some of what Flash can do
but not everything.

Another thing to consider is that an Activity on the XO (or running
under Sugar) is more than the kind of self contained programs you
could make with Flash.  A good game under Sugar can be played by more
than one person at the same time.  These Shared Activities are a big
part of what Sugar is all about.

I am writing a book on developing Sugar Activities which should be of
use to you.  A recent draft is at:


I have asked for the book to be published and linked to the "Read"
page at flossmanuals.net.  When that happens (later today, I hope)
this will be newer than the PDF.  The PDF should be adequate to get
you started.
