Thanks, will be very valuable. Don't forget to mention the exact build number.

Interesting. In the olpc-sur mailing list, teachers are starting to
lose the fear and are directly sharing lots of experiences. If you can
grok some Spanish, I recommend you give it a look.

I'm sure teachers in Uruguay and Peru have lots of problems and
perhaps they would be better served by Ubuntu or MS Windows, but they
seem to have an attitude of "let's see how we can take the most out of
this thing" and they seem to be succeeding!

Do you think there's some specific issue with Mongolia that may make
Sugar unsuitable for them? Also note that teachers in Uruguay are
using 656, a very very old build.
