Sugar is already compiled and known working for ARMv7 hardfp via the
Fedora project and downstream OLPC. The Fedora stack would happily
work on this device and all we would need is a kernel, a Xorg driver
as possibly a touchscreen driver. If the tablet is based on the
AllWinner A1x CPUs I'm already working on getting Fedora support so it
shouldn't be hard to extend the support to the tablet.

All the userspace is already done as you can use the existing Fedora
ARMv7 hardfp userspace without any problems.

There's probably better places to discuss this as it's kind of
offtopic for this list. Archives and details to subscribe to the
Fedora ARM list are here [1]
