Where you are coming from appears to differ from where I am coming
from.  I am looking at the XO from the point of view of "How usable
is this?"  That question does not necessarily involve precise
measurement -- evaluation ought to suffice.

In my mind I did not volunteer to be a formal "tester".  If you want
me to be, please publish a formal *specification* consisting of
'shalls' -- i.e., the XO __shall__ properly render H.264 videos, the
XO __shall__ without visual aberrations play back videos using an
on-screen picture size of at least 14.67 cm by 11 cm, etc., etc.
*Then* I will develop a "test suite", which I will run against every
new beta that comes along (to "check off" which 'shalls' are being met).
