SugarLabs Releases Sugar on Stick


SugarLabs, the Boston-based organization leading the development of Sugar, the open-source operating environment originally developed for the One Laptop Per Child Foundation’s XO Laptop, said today that it is now distributing a self-contained version of Sugar that boots from a thumb drive. Called “Sugar on a Stick,” the product was described in detail by SugarLabs founder Walter Bender back in February. It enables anyone with a Windows or Mac computer to run Sugar and the educational applications that come with it.
