Hi, Sam

I am hoping that the Ubuntu Sugar can become the basis for a version 
deployable on platforms other than the XO. In trying it out, I am 
discovering a number of glitches (for example, the Lion activity needs 
to update the po file for another activity. No problem on an XO but on 
Ubuntu the user is a Linux user with no root permission and the activity 
is in /usr/share/sugar/activities owned by root. This is to be expected.

Thanks for the explanation regarding the languages. I was able to test 
Lion on my XO-1.75 and so have released version 2.
