A little to strong I agree. I read quite a lot of stuff on the XO and
it is quite useful.
The main complaints are similar to yours: the losing of page/zoom info
between reboots.
And I look forward to Firefox downloads to Journal, it is a little
timeconsuming to exit Firefox and open Browse to download a pdf or
other format.

Some annotation tool is probably a must for education.
