<p style="font-size: 1.3em; background: #edfdd7; padding: 10px; border: 1px solid #cde7a8">'''Sugar reinvents how computers can be used for education.''' It promotes sharing and collaborative learning and gives children the opportunity to use their laptops on their own terms. Children — and their teachers — have the freedom to reshape, reinvent, and reapply their software, and content. Sugar is based on GNU/Linux, a free and open-source operating system. </p>

==What are the Sugar Labs?==
 
Sugar is available under the free software GNU General Public License (GPL) to anyone who wants to extend it. “Sugar Labs”, a (soon to be established) non-profit foundation will serve as a support base and gathering place for the community of educators and software developers who want to extend the platform and create Sugar-compatible applications. Sugarlabs software is found on the XO laptop. You can find more out about the project at laptop.org.
