They're probably just throwing Sugar at the kid to see what comes out, maybe we'll see some new generation that thinks totally different because of this. Who knows, if they get obsessed with their computers they might become like 500% more productive in Sugar than an average person is in Gnome or KDE...

Or it may be the other way round? Kids trying to get rid of what they may think is too dumb for them and installing Gnome or XFCE on the OLPC? :-)

I'd like to see a GUI not being statically, but developing dynamically such as the intelligence, the experience and the education of the child is increasing.
