[sugar] Shared Terminal Idea
Tue May 13 15:22:07 EDT 2008
I totally agree with this suggestion - implementing collaboration can
be a lot of work and be error prone, so I think activity developers
tend to not get around to it.
Having a built in VNC or Remote X based 'default sharing solution',
along the lines of what LogMeIn or GotoMyPC do but on a per-activity
basis, would go a long way towards establishing the ubiquitous Sugar
collaboration experience as designed.
Then, activities with special sharing requirements, like games which
become multiplayer competitions when shared, can override this default
