I hate the "core activities" idea. What are the core activities for an  
education machine? The activities that distinguish the XO from all the  
other laptops out there are regularly omitted from the "core". Like in  
the new olpc3 build (*). There is no technical reason for this, and it  
sends the wrong message. Unless someone wants to  convey that this is  
just another laptop project.
