non-profit spin off from the OLPC (One Laptop per Child).Sugar Labs
provides the Sugar desktop interface, which runs in turn, on top of
a version of Fedora 10.”

“On June 24th, at LinuxTag in Berlin, Germany, Sugar Labs
announced the immediate availability of Sugar on a Stick v1
Strawberry. As the name indicates, Sugar on a Stick is a live USB
flash drive distribution. It requires at least a GB-sized drive.
With it, you can boot Sugar on any PC. It was designed to work on
older PCs, netbooks, and other low-end hardware. You can also run
Sugar with the provided virtual machine software on both
Intel-based Macs Windows PCs.”

“According to Sugar, this distribution “is designed to work with
a School Server that can provide content distribution, homework
collection, backup services, Moodle [a popular course management
system] integration, and filtered access to the Internet.”
