I only have one XO. I do all my development work on a couple of Fedora
10 boxes running Sugar. These two boxes are connected to the same
router using Ethernet cables. It has been my experience that the only
way they can collaborate is through the jabber server, and that makes me
think that the mesh networking is a function of the wireless networking
built into the XO and that two computers wired to the same router can't
collaborate that way. I'd be interested to know if I'm right.
