Update: Please be aware of the new location of this spin! See this for further details.
I'm proud to be announce the availability of our Fedora Sugar Spin,
which incorporates the Sugar Desktop Environment on a Fedora Live CD.
So, what is this in specific? With this spin, you'll be able to run
Sugar, which is developed by Sugarlabs and the desktop environment used
on the OLPC, directly from a Live CD! You'll find several activities on
the image including most notably...
- sugar-browse - a web browsing activity based on xulrunner
- sugar-write - a word processor based on abiword
We, the OLPC SIG, will be importing further activities into Fedora,
which might be installed using 'yum install sugar-*' at a later time.
Where can you get it? Easily, here (updated):
Here's the SHA1 checksum, just if you're interested:
And what if you wanted to put it quickly onto your USB Key? Even easier!
You'll just need to grab Luke Macken's liveusb-creator, which already
includes support for the Sugar Spin. Here's the link:
It still contains the old link; we're working on getting this fixed, but until then you'll need to download the image manually from the location above.
Thank you everybody, who made this possible!
