Tested today: 04/08/2011

Macbook Pro i7:
 Intel Core i7-2620 CPU@ 2.70 z x4
 Intel Sandybridge Mobile GEM 20100330 DEVELOPMENT

1-) VirtualBox 4.0.4 OSX Emulation seems to be best:
( a list of ready to go Importable Virtual Machines with sugar.)

Trisquel-4.1-sugar works very well as a SoaS and is Recommended for 
Intel Macs

2-) These CD's boot on the MAC
   (hold "C" key during power on on Mac about 10+ sec)
 Ethernet (wired) and usb mouse work (No wireless)

Gnome3-shell 2.91.93 Desktop

SoaS f15

there are still some problems with Soas:
 on first login to Live User it tries to go to start openbox
 log out then type in live user in the  login bar "other"
select sugar as gdm dropdown
it will fail
next log in live user (no password) and sugar will start
If Ethernet (wired) is connected the f1 neigborhood works on jabber
 Control Panel/ About My Computer:
    Sugar on a stick 5
    sugar 0.92.0

I still think Virtualization is the Best way to run sugar on a Mac
