== What is Ubuntu Sugar Remix? ==
The vision for the Ubuntu Sugar Remix is to provide students preK to 12 with a learning platform. We envision younger children using the Award wining [[http://www.sugarlabs.org | Sugar]] Learning Platform and allowing older students to move to a standard Ubuntu desktop as they become cognitively ready, with an easy settings change.
== Notice ==
As of 2013-03, Ubuntu does not have a stable version of Sugar in the Ubuntu repositories.
Until this is fixed, Sugar can be installed as follows:
   1. use Sweets-distribution on Ubuntu, recommended for Ubuntu

   2. use a -VirtualBox- virtual appliance, Ready to import into -VirtualBox-
