Significant changes were made between a B2 XO and a mass
production XO laptop. As a result, the B2 laptops are no longer
supported by current software builds and not recommended for
development work. While it seems a shame to abandon hardware
in the field, all the B2 machines built number less than half a single
day of XO mass production, and our development/test resources are
stretched trying to properly support just the mass production machines.
