So apparently no "product manager" or other person in a leading role
feels compelled to clear up the confusion.
Here is what I understand:
Quanta will soon switch to pre-install the "update.1" build. This
means any new XO will come only with very basic activities factory-
installed, the ones "supported by OLPC" as per http://dev.laptop.org/ticket/6598
(currently Journal, Read, Chat, Browse, Write, Record, and Paint,
possibly also Terminal).
Countries can install unsupported activities on each machine using a
G1G1 recipients will lose all other activities when upgrading, they
can then download the lost activities from the web. Same for other
The unsupported activities will be installed in the user's home
directory so they will at least not be lost again when the base system
is upgraded. But they also will not be automatically updated anymore,
this will have to be done manually.
Is that about right?
