Actually, I saw on the Sugar on a Stick page, that the computers
displayed in the photos look like Classmate PC

Yes. For sure your action had a positive impact and has paved the way
to several spin-offs, and it's a great contribution to the OLPC
Vietnam project.

Are there any volunteers to gather for one afternoon (or morning, or
evening) and finish up the translation of the XO manual on
Flossmanuals ?


I "promised" to finish the translation for last year. It's never late
to fulfill that promise.
By gathering forces, in a short time we can help together to
accomplish one job : finish the translation and publish the XO manual
in Vietnamese !

I believe that by working at 3-4 persons, within 3-4 hours we could
finish the translation of XO Manual.
I'll provide some coffee, tea and biscuits !

So any volunteers for a translation sprint ? and do not hesitate to
propose a date !
