I don't think you can correlate 'mature' with 'fast'.  Gnome is quite mature
but also quite bloated.

The XO is a weak machine by today's performance standards, so trying to run
today's Linux is going to require heavy optimization no matter what you
start with.

People just have to stop arguing about it and start doing that optimization
work, like Benjamin did today :)
