As OLPC OS pushes forward to Fedora 21, I would like to ask if anyone
employed by OLPC would be in a position to comment on OLPC's short to mid
term goals for OLPC OS and the XO laptops in general. The recent layoff of
key OLPC developers and the marketing shift towards Android has left many
of us wondering where OLPC sees itself in one to five years.

To reduce their risk due to uncertainty, we are in a situation where
several deployments are asking for Sugar on standard laptops. While
beneficial to the ecosystem, this has both pros and cons for OLPC the
Association and Sugar Labs.
