Speaking for myself, if it was Ubuntu I wanted to run -- I would not 
  choose the XO as the platform -- I would choose something more 
powerful, even if it cost more than $200 USD.

I __have__ installed a distro (let's call it "OLPC") on my XO, which 
provides goodies (such as a reasonably working OHM in Joyride) that 
other currently available distros don't.

The advice given above ("install a distro") seems to say:  "What you 
have now - throw it out !!".  Thanks.
