Ask OLPC a Question about Software/Summary/lang-ko
어떤 소프트웨어가 포함되나요?
Without being picky, we prefer the term activities (instead of applications). That taken care of, the software components initially planned to be included are: the operating system, a web-browser, a document viewer, a text editor, chat client, and some programming environments.
아이들이 프로그래밍을 하나요?
아이들이 읽기 & 쓰기를 배운 뒤에 곧바로 소설을 쓸 수 있기를 바랄까요? 아뇨. 소설을 쓸 수는 있을까요? 이론적으로는 네. 그러나, 대부분은 재미 이상의 글쓰기로 나아가지 않을 것입니다.
Are kids expected to write novels after they learn to read & write? No.
Can they write novels? Theoretically yes, but most will never go past writing for fun.
The same with the laptops and programming: just because they may learn how to do things with the computer doesn't turn them into programmers. They aren't required to learn programming any more than they need to know how to write a novel.
But they can if they want to, after all everything included is Open Source—so they can tinker with all of it. And that's the reason why several programming languages or environments are included, not for them to program them (in the software development sense) but to do things with the laptop. Currently included you find Etoys, LOGO, Python, TamTam, and some others to be determined. Java is not amongst them.
도스나 윈도용 프로그램이 돌아가나요?
No. MS-DOS programs (not MS-Windows) may benefit from a second life through the use of third-party emulators, but don't count on it.
인터페이스는 어떤 모양인가요?
노트북없이 Sugar 를 돌려볼 수 있나요?
Yes. The most simple way is to use an emulator and try it in your own computer.
소프트웨어는 현지화될 수 있나요?
넵.현지화에 참여하기를 방문해 주십시오.
Yes. A major objective of the OLPC is that communities and their children preserve their cultural heritage and have the tools to bring it to the digital world—another reason for Open Source software. It won't be easy to support so many different languages, but who said otherwise? The community (national and global) is welcome to participate in the effort.
