The open-source Sugar Learning Platform is a Linux-based operating system that was specially developed for the OLPC project, and good news to curious folks who have wondered what it was all about – it is currently available on a 1GB USB flash drive, nicknamed the Sugar on a Stick v1 Strawberry which allows any computer to boot up to Sugar when plugged in. Currently, it comes in a version for the OLPC XO-1, although it will ship with the newer XO-1.5 laptops in the fall.
