That is exactly the experience I hope to engage.  From my perspective,
Sugar Labs and OLPC are still pretty heavy on theory and vision.

Ok.  We are currently building communities to help package Sugar for Fedora,
Debian, and Ubuntu. We should have stable packages in a couple of weeks.

LiveCD and Sugar spins will take a bit longer.  Each distro has an
education variant, but except for skoleLinux they don't currently have a
lot of momentum.

I'll follow up on this thread when we have packages that 'just work'.
