Sugar on a Stick


Sugar on a Stick is a Sugar environment that you can carry in your pocket.


This spin is a joint project of Fedora Mini and Fedora OLPC.

Detailed Description

See the spin description.

Benefit to Fedora

Sugar on a Stick, as a solution itself, will give Fedora a stronger standing. Through using the Sugar on a Stick name, a recognized and acclaimed brand, Fedora will significantly benefit from having Sugar on a Stick as an official spin. As outlined in the Sugar 0.88 feature description, this spin will allow us to capture the interest in developing for OLPC and Sugar Labs on the Fedora platform.

Enable children to reclaim computers.

Spin description

Sugar on a Stick (SoaS) enables children to reclaim computers. SoaS aims to make it easy for children, parents, or local deployers to provide each student with a small device (USB stick or thumbdrive) that can starts any computer with the student's personalized Sugar environment. We would like to see Sugar's presence, journal, and clarity principles usable on any machine — at school, at home, and anywhere there is a suitable computing device. Sugar on a Stick starts up ("boots") the host computer directly, without touching the hard disk; however, it may be necessary to adjust the computer's settings to look for a USB device before the hard disk.
