Steven, glad to hear. Hope you have been doing well.

> That work was very rewarding and I was glad to see OLPC step in and
> release official builds based on my work. ?The "F11 for the XO-1" was
> also a starting point for the original Dextrose system, which Bernie
> Innocenti brought to fruition.
> Now we will be taking the original Dextrose and expanding upon it.
> Dextrose2 will be the result. ?Based on Fedora11 and Sugar 0.88 it
> will strive for stability, while providing deployments with a
> customizable product. ?I have already started creating builds for the
> new system with additional language support, and they can be found at
> http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Dextrose . ?The builds will be for both
> the XO-1 and XO-1.5 and will be available both with Gnome and without.
> We have a team of developers at SEETA who will be working on this with
> us. ?Many of them are already known to the community and more will
> become known as they join the effort.
> I have already started going over the outstanding issues and know that
> with everyone's help we can make Dextrose the Premier system for XO
> deployments.
> The issues that need to be worked on can be found at:
