__NOEDITSECTION__
<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>
