Yes, I bought one of these and tried to get it going.  I couldn't find
any reason why it shouldn't work with the standard drivers, but the
whole process of simply trying to get the drivers from the standard
tree compiled and on my XO wore out my patience.  Putting the right
drivers (usb2vga and a couple dependencies, iirc) in a XO kernel
package would be a big help.
