To provide the somewhat equivalent programs in full version OOo in
comparison to OOo4kids:
a yum install takes up ~300 MB, though I believe some of that is the

Claudia and I have been working with OOo4kids for the past few days
and I really like it in both Sugar and Gnome and on my own Mac. (It
can be launched in Gnome through /home/olpc/Activities/
OOo4Kids.activity/resources/program/soffice) It has very nice icon
driven interface and has much of the functionality I would expect in
typical office applications.
I like the idea of have a single application that is usuable in both
environments to reduce the overall footprint. Could we have it linked
into the Gnome Menu?
The one question I have is in regards to localization. Can we have one
bundle that supports localization, i.e. changes default language
according sugar/OFW values, or would we need different bundles?
