It depends what you want to do. If you actually need the hardware,
apply to the Brazilian Ministry of Education. They will have a million
units. OLPC has fewer than a thousand prototype units, and gives them
out only to hardware developers and governments conducting trials.
But you should be aware that you can run Sugar on almost any computer
running Linux. Fedora Rawhide is the easiest, but you can get help on
the devel list for getting it running on other versions. See, in
particular, the Sugar on Debian page on the wiki.

If you tell us your idea, some of us can point you to resources you
can use. Some of us might even want to join in your project. I will be
recruiting schools in other countries to link with Brazilian schools.
Does that fit with your research idea?

Listen to the children, and tell the world what they need.
