Sugar coming to an EeePC or Classmate near you?

BetaNews reported Thursday that Walter Bender, founder of Sugar Labs, is in informal talks with four ULPC manufacturers to bring Sugar to their products."The goal [now] is to make the Sugar [software] platform agnostic to whatever extent possible, so that Sugar doesn't have to be coupled to any single vendor's hardware.

BetaNews reported Thursday that Walter Bender, founder of Sugar Labs, is in informal talks with four ULPC manufacturers to bring Sugar to their products.

"The goal [now] is to make the Sugar [software] platform agnostic to whatever extent possible, so that Sugar doesn't have to be coupled to any single vendor's hardware. We plan to work with everyone," Bender told BetaNews late Tuesday.

Intel, formerly a member of the OLPC board, has expressed willingness to work with a variety of software developers to bring different operating systems to the Classmate. The name Asus has also been bandied about; with the remarkable success of their Eee PCs, a partnership with Sugar labs would certainly expand options for consumers, particularly in the educational market.

The question still remains, however, does anyone really want Sugar anyway?
