The original goal of the Sugar HIG was to move away from the desktop 
model and to make most functions available by clicking on icons. The Journal
now requires nearly every action to be made by selection from a menu 
which is longer than most 'file' menus. First, a click on the icon 
should resume the activity whose icon is shown without any need to deal 
with a palette. Second, a palette should be toggled by a right-click as 
in a context menu. It should stay open until either the cursor is 
clicked off the menu or an option is clicked. Currently a palette 
disappears if you move the cursor away for a microsecond making moving 
from the icon to the cursor require very steady movement - something 
that is diificul on an XO, especially for a young child.
