One of my favorite things about laptops is that their software can be cheaply updated years after they were built and deployed to respond to problems and needs that weren't addressed the first time around. Consequently, if you'd like to see the numbers in reports like this one improve, please head over to the OLPC wiki or to James Simmon's book on how to Make Your Own Sugar Activities (also available on Amazon).
Alternately, if you think there's more to be gained by fixing lower-level scalability and ergonomics issues in the platform, then you might enjoy some of our recent thoughts on how to compensate for the uneven availability of high-quality instruction mentioned in the IADB report with a personalized, growth-oriented narrative interface called "Nell".
(Disclaimer: I worked for OLPC as a software developer and release manager from 2007-2009 and have remained peripherally involved as an occasional volunteer contributor since then.)
