All information on Sugar is (or should be) available through the Wiki page
* Installing Sugar (on various platforms)
* Sugar Instructions, booting and getting started with Sugar
and all of the pages on installing Sugar should be listed at
and thus we find, with a bit more poking around,
Developers: http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Sugar_with_sugar-jhbuild from
source in git.
Bleeding edge: http://xs-dev.laptop.org/~cscott/olpc/streams/,
including joyride and faster
Stable: http://wiki.laptop.org/go/OS_images#Latest_Stable_Build points
Live CD: http://wiki.laptop.org/go/LiveCD
I'll add this list to the Sugar Wiki page.
