I think you are getting at what I consider the heart of the problem. 
SugarLabs sees Sugar as an alternative GUI for any computing device with 
primary efficacy in the developed, internet-connected world. This goal 
is understandable since the XOs have a limited life and so Sugar must be 
operable on currently marketed devices.

The project I signed up for is to place computers in the hands of every 
child at a community school in the developing world where electricity is 
an issue, the internet is unavailable, and teachers as well as students 
have no prior experience with computing. The goal of the project is to 
enhance the educational opportunities of these students through the use 
of Sugar as well as access to information others on the right side of 
the digital divide get from the internet.
