I think that "single click" design is quite appropriate for kids who
are not concerned with "what level of Sugar does my system have ?"
I have my own preference -- "Mother, I'll do it myself !!!". Plus
the Sugar Client doesn't know about proxies, so mine can't ping ASLO
for update information. Plus the Activity updates I fetch get
installed onto my "permanent" SD card, not through the Journal.
Plus from hour to hour I might reboot an XO with wildly divergent
build versions (with completely different Sugar levels). Put that
all together, and what I (as someone operating "apart from" formal
releases) am interested is in is __reading about__ the most
appropriate update for what my XO is running at this instant.
[For whoever deleted from laptop.org the webpage listing optional
Activities for build 767 systems -- thanks a lot, NOT.]
