Cooking with Linux - Learning...Disguised

It has been said that playing is a child's work, because play is the means by which young children learn. You have to wonder if that's where the expression “mixing work and play” came from.

OLPC XO adaptations?

Amberhawke's picture

What a wonderful article! I've been wanting to get my 5 year old on the computer and this looks like a fun learning environment. I bought/donated-for an OLPC XO in their G1G1 program, my thought was that this would be for her, but so far the applications on it seem to be geared toward older children. I am wondering if any of the applications listed in the article have been modified to work on the XO through the Sugar interface.
