Did you know that with Sugar sharing become as simple as in real life (even more)?

Using an office desktop software, sharing works and working on the same application is always a mess : at sometimes you have to configure the bluetooth and other time the local network, or use the web in a certain way. Each time you want to share something whether is it in real time or not, local or not, you have plan a whole strategy…`

“They (micros…) tell humans to adapt to the software, we (appl…) tell our computers and softwares to adapt to humans”

What about this one :

“human share, work, adapt with humans thanks to an intuitive platform (sugar)”

This is what sugar try to do because this is the best way to learn. The others have missed the point.

Have a look how it works:

Did you know that Sugar is improved thanks to the work of its contributors ?

Sugar is an Open Source project that is to say it evolves as volunteers contributes to make it work.

Here for example a little video of the last sugarcamp ( when the sugar community meets to work on sugar). Special thanks to the gnome developers who were here also.

“If you’ve got something to contribute, please do” 🙂
