For the record, Sugar runs perfectly fine on ARM, and has for years. (The
same is true of Gnome.) ARM is not a problem. The challenge here is the
slate-style hardware, which is significantly different from the hardware
for which Sugar has been developed. That hardware would be no less
challenging for us if the CPU were x86.
