I agree here.
We're trying to give the user a show-case, a first-look experience of
what we can provide. I'd really love to see a more complete solution,
too, but this requires obviously more work and help...
So why are we including Sugar, even though I argued in my last e-mail,
that it would be moving quickly? This is now something else: We're not
only focused on Sugar and are giving out a solution with which we're
intending to show the most important educational apps off. Sure, it has
partly to do with dropping the Sugar Spin. Because now, we can provide
people with educational tools from two great projects, the KDE Education
Project and Sugar Labs at the same time.
By the way, I also uploaded a slightly modified version:
No big changes, but some comments and updates.
