Using an XO

You say 'Using an Internet browser, such as Browse'. Isnt Browse the ONLY Sugarised browser that saves to the Journal (and mangles filenames)?

Now that you have widened the section heading from 'Sugar' to 'XO' maybe we should start by saying which of the previous methods can be used with Gnome/Terminal with and without root access and then give the Browse method which I describe. --Tony

I was just generalizing, as the XO may be in Gnome or Sugar, in Terminal or a Console. There are many users using other browsers on XO hardware. Surf is the only browser packaged in recent Sugar on a Stick releases. --FGrose 02:07, 30 October 2011 (UTC)
Are you seriously recommending that people use Sugar to download these large files? I'm surprised. Remember the context of the page is to help people who don't know how to download reliably. Using Browse and Sugar Journal has those extra risks that I describe in the edits I just made; available space, undesired rename, a potential crash near the end of the copy, and increased threat to the endurance of the NAND FLASH, microSD or eMMC inside the XO. --Quozl
I agree. I was responding to a question Tony sent me after I added the use of cd to an attached disc and wget for downloading. Your adjustments look good. --FGrose 02:10, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
