BBC NEWS | Technology | OLPC software to power aging PCs


Software originally developed for the One Laptop per Child (OLPC) project can now be used on any old PC.

Sugar on a stick, as it is known, can be run from a USB drive to give aging PCs a new interface and access to collaborative educational software.

The software, designed for use by children, was launched at the LinuxTag conference in Berlin.

It has been developed by Sugar Labs, a breakaway organisation from OLPC.
