Hi there,

first of all, this is my first post to this mailing list, so a warm 
welcome to everybody.

I am currently working in an NGO in India and want to use Sugar as a 
tool of education. Therefore I bought a low-cost tablet, rooted it and 
installed Fedora ARM in a chroot environment together with Sugar. Now 
all that works and via VNC I have the graphical interface running 
smoothly including all activities (at least I did not find any not 
working). If there is a general interest in this project, I will post a 
detailed way to do that.

However, the reason I started to get some interest in this project was 
an article on MIT Technology Review ( 
) describing the great success of using tablets in Ethiopia.

I now face some struggle where to find all the software and material 
used in that project as in the sugar labs activity website I can hardly 
find what I was looking for. It would also be nice if somebody could 
tell me about the localization process regarding Hindi as I could not 
find too much on the web about it.

Thank you all very much.
