Hi Sascha,

the best work in this context that I've seen so far is Sven Bergman's 
master thesis: "Sugar - Not necessarily unhealthy": 

By the way, what is the focus of your thesis? I've recently restarted a 
dormant thesis project myself and would of course love to avoid too 
much overlap (esp. since Sven's thesis is basically *exactly* what I 
had planned to do;-).

> b) that describe ideas used when designing Sugar (e.g. other 
> experimental UIs), i.e. that formed the basis of the Sugar HIGs.
> c) anything else that had an influence on the UI design of Sugar.
> What I've found:
> - Carlos' thesis is the best match so far, but it focusses on what 
> Sugar looks like, not the ideas behind it
> - some early articles about OLPC but they're more about laptops in 
> education than about Sugar
> I'd appreciate any pointer in the right direction.
