Part of the confusion is terminology. If by pre-installed, you mean
part of the OS image, then the only pre-installed activity is the
Journal, and that only because Sugar doesn't really work without
(yet). But the activity bundle that will be included with the OS image
has "pre-installed" by default all of the activities that were
included since 650.
