It isn't Just Sugar

John Gruber's take on the history which has lead to no 64-bit Photoshop on Mac OS X (meaning that the next version of Photoshop on Windows will be significantly faster) is also useful context for understanding what's going on with Sugar. That is, OLPC isn't the first or only organization to overpromise and underdeliver on their API's, leaving application developers in a bind. Complex software projects running behind is the norm. The question is what the real time constraints on OLPC are.
