Disclaimer:  I am not asking for help;  I'm sharing my experiences.

Booted SoaS3-200908222158.iso (from USB stick) on my XO-1.  I don't 
know if it was the USB stick's hardware, or the build's software, 
but now my system seemed to run at least twice as slow as normal.

The first try I got as far as Home View, but when I tried to switch 
to the List panel (because Terminal was not in the ring), Sugar 
vanished.  The second try I instead clicked on 'Speak' in the ring 
(see attachment).  The third try I went to the text console, and 
manually modified favorite_activities to put Terminal in the ring. 
Then I was able to do my usual things - but at a snail's pace.

This is going to be the last SoaS3 build I'll try for the time 
being.  I'm interested in how the __XO__ runs, and software 
development for the XO is currently F11-based.  This new SoaS3 build 
is F12-based - I'll stick with F11 and forget about F12 for now.
