I fail to see how any resources would be lost by clearly separating work
on "Sugar" (the desktop) and "Sugar on a Stick" (the USB stick optimized
distribution containing Sugar).
It seems to me that Sugarlabs is currently promoting SoaS as a Sugarlabs
effort but avoid the term "distribution".
A car is a car. A distribution is a distribution.
I suggest to instead promote SoaS as the distribution currently best
optimized for Sugar.
Such change in promotion would encourage friendly competition among
distributions. It would also leave room for other distributions
promoting their alternative products as SoaS as well, if they feel that
it fits the description of "currently best optimized for Sugar" ;-)
