That's great.  Because, frankly, I was wondering what comes after Sugar for
the kids.

First, we'll have a refresh of the original XO with a speed bump
(CPU/Memory) as well as a storage bump (Flash storage) what will make
things more efficient in the current design before the XO-2. It will
also run Fedora 11 booting to Sugar with an option to boot to full
Gnome desktop which makes the machine more usable for real world use
(in case the kid using Sugar eventually outgrows the environment).
