At this point, I think I have used Sugar more on non-XO computers than
XO computers. The only real issue for me are the keyboard mappings:
the lack of a dedicated Frame key in particular. (0.83 makes a big --
positive -- difference in that I am no longer needing to cycle through
the Journal to restart activities.)
It would be good to do some brainstorming about keyboard mappings and
support for touchscreens in the 0.86 planning.
