I was thinking along these lines earlier today. I actually think
OLPC is going to be making a big mistake as well if they don't address
this somehow. When the XO 1.5 comes out, I can just see the possible
headlines about 1000000 kids having their computers orphaned. Even if
SugarLabs didn't sell them the computers in the first place, it isn't
going to look good for SugarLabs either.

I have an XO-1 and clearly too much time on my hands. My kids also
have two XO-1s as well, but I don't really want to touch
their computers until there is some stability.
