I didn't read everything but it appears this has to do with 
www.sugarlabs.org and not Sugar.

Our fundamental problem is the perception that Sugar is limited to the 
XO platform. Not only do we need to focus on Sugar for
other platforms but on the basic question: What does Sugar offer that 
makes it a compelling choice for education in schools? Once that is 
decided, it would be appropriate to use the website to convey the 
message to the public.
