 +===SOAS with VirtualBox===
 +It is also possible to use VirtualBox to run the Sugar on a Stick file. Go into settings for your Fedora virtual machine and change the disk image to the sugar on stick iso file. You should then be able to boot the Virtual Machine normally, and it will go directly to Sugar.

 Familiarity with the Linux family of operating systems can be useful when dealing with the XO. If you haven'​t done so before, you might consider installing Linux on a machine you have access to. Ubuntu is a distribution that is particularly suited for beginners, and Fedora (the basis for the XO operating system) is good for intermediate users. The Gentoo installation process is considerably more involved, but upon completion you will have a better understanding and appreciation for Linux. ​ For Windows users, the Ubuntu CD provides Wubi, a Windows program that allows Ubuntu to be installed without re-partitioning your computer. ​ Sun Microsystem'​s VirtualBox provides Windows and Mac OS X users the ability to install any flavor of Linux as a virtual machine inside their existing OS, free of charge.  ​ Familiarity with the Linux family of operating systems can be useful when dealing with the XO.

 +=====Making a Game=====
 +These are two useful skeletons for building a game. These skeletons are compatible with various versions of sugar. The pygtk example is useful for games that don't require much animation. Otherwise, the pygame example is the better starting point.
