Ooo, a Upgrade Party!

This meeting will feature two activities that is sure to excite the geek in all of us:

  • Gabey8 will have USB memory sticks with the Sugar Release 8.2.0 upgrade and Sugar activities. If you still haven't upgraded, you should join the XO Upgrade Parties now
  • There will also be Ubuntu and Fedora SD cards so you can try out alternate adult XO user interfaces. These Sugar alternatives will run from the SD cards without actually impacting Sugar on your XO.
So if you are a current XO laptop owner, via G1G1 2007 or 2008, and you're in Philly, then join Gabey8 at the:
