IMHO the individual activities are *not* what makes Sugar such a compelling proposition. Sure, having some of them as apps on other platforms would be nice. But isn't collaborating and sharing at the heart of Sugar? The Journal as central UI? The effortless discovery of your peers in the neighborhood view? Etc? *That* experience would have to be ported to another platform first, and then the activities can follow. Otherwise, it's just a bunch of random apps, of which there are plenty already in the various app stores.
