I prefer "OLPC release 8.2", until such time as OLPC either (a) makes
hardware other than the XO, or (b) ships/supports software other than
Sugar.  Martin seems to be using 'OLPC XS xyz' to name his school
server releases; that seems clear enough.  I don't think adding
"software" to the name adds any value (what else do we do releases
of?).  And 'XO' should be the default; let's keep the common case
short and leave it implied.
