I think this may confuse people. Without the qualifier "OS" or
"Software", people might thing this could be the XO's hardware
iteration (like B1, B2, B4)

Also, it might be good to toss in the XO's name in there to indicate
that this is the OS of the XO machine itself.

Or how about calling it something different altogether? Something
short, sweet, and memorable like most Linux flavor names?

A spinoff from the name Sugar? Before Sugar was spunoff to run on
other platforms, I think journalists kept calling the XO's OS Sugar.

Mmm. Sugar-XO?
