I just wanted to clarify a possible source of confusion in your choice
of wording.

A "Live" CD doesn't run "on" anything, generally speaking.  It implies
a CD which you boot the entire operating system from.  To the best of
my knowledge there are no Live Windows Sugar CD's.

So, it' is just a Sugar Live CD.  It runs Linux underneath Sugar. When
it is booted, it is temporarily replacing all of Windows, not "for"
Windows.  If I put the same Sugar Live CD in my Linux computer, then
boot, it replaces my hard drive's version of Linux with the CD version
of Linux until I remove the CD and reboot.

I hope that helps you with your question a little.
