Already we are running into some problems on this page. It is not clear to the casual observer what the status of the various Linux Applications is re Sugar. How well do these applications run under Sugar? Have they been Sugarized? etc. Let's discuss here what a portal might look like that is both inclusive of Sugar Activities and Linux and Windows Applications. We'll need to consider, among other things:

stability (i.e., is this well tested or demoware?)
 +
degree of Suagrization (e.g., does it support Journal interactions? does it play nicely as full screen? etc.)
 +
localization
 +
platform dependencies (e.g., does it run on all platforms that Sugar runs on equally well? are there features--such as the data-input in the Measure activity--that are specific to specific hardware?)

et al.

Other considerations are: where do I get the activity? how do I install it? Is there documentation? --[[User:Walter|Walter]] 12:15, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

Added the list from the homepage, with info on sugarizing...

The catmoran scripts are more like "sugar coating", not true sugarizing (which involves making the activity sharable, etc.). We need some way to separate the two concepts. User:AuntiMame 22May08 20:11 ET

I like the term sugar coating vs. sugarizing to define them. Let's use those!

it does seem to keep in line whit the whole glucose sucrose taxonomy. User:AuntiMame

Activity/Application status

Already we are running into some problems on this page. It is not clear to the casual observer what the status of the various Linux Applications is re Sugar. How well do these applications run under Sugar? Have they been Sugarized? etc. Let's discuss here what a portal might look like that is both inclusive of Sugar Activities and Linux and Windows Applications. We'll need to consider, among other things:

stability (i.e., is this well tested or demoware?) degree of Suagrization (e.g., does it support Journal interactions? does it play nicely as full screen? etc.) localization platform dependencies (e.g., does it run on all platforms that Sugar runs on equally well? are there features--such as the data-input in the Measure activity--that are specific to specific hardware?) et al.

Other considerations are: where do I get the activity? how do I install it? Is there documentation? --Walter 12:15, 24 May 2008 (UTC)
