Hi, everybody.
Like Daniel, I'm from Uruguay and I feel identified with the Walter message.
I'm fourteen years old, and I started using sugar when I was ten, when I
receive my XO was the first time that I used linux and it liked me a lot.

About the young programmers:
I was a student of Flavio Danesse, and he taught me a lot but for obvious
reasons I had to appeal the internet to found more information, where the
most are in english, for me it wasn't a problem, because I have learned
But the most of the children in Latin America hasn't this luck, and they
find it difficult to program.

About sugar and the teachers:
Unfortunately, when I was in primary school, no teacher was concerned with
explaining how to use my XO, and the "logical sugar activities", such as
Turtle Art and Scratch, but luckily their interfaces are very intuitive.
And when I started the high school was the same, no teacher was interested
in the XO, except Mr. Flavio Danesse :)
For this reason the most of my classmates, only use their XO to browse in
Facebook and other social networks.
