We also have Marcelo from Paraguay, who comes often on IRC and is
currently trying to upgrade his XO to Sugar 0.94.

Users reaching out for us and telling out what they like/dislike about
our product is a rare privilege for us engineers. Those of us who speak
Spanish more fluently than me should talk with them and try to find out
what they're trying to accomplish with Sugar and how we could serve them
