A belated follow-up:  I don't know why you said this, because we've
made no such decision yet.  Sugar's a safe bet, but there are large
obstacles to running either Fedora (no ARM port yet!) or GNOME (not
suited for touchscreen use) on the tablets.  We'll let you know when
we do announce the software stack for XO-1.75 and XO-3.

(The fact that we haven't decided what to use doesn't mean that we
definitely *won't* use Fedora or GNOME.  It simply means that we
haven't decided yet.  Advice welcome!)
