Disclaimer: I am not asking for help; I'm sharing my experiences.
Ran with soas70xo (booted from nand) on my XO-1. Many of the
difficulties with previous SoaS builds were still present, with some
new ones added.
The "X crash" scrolling problem is a BLOCKER - for instance, because
of this problem I cannot change the Jabber server specification.
Speak did not produce any sound. [It did not even attempt to wiggle
its mouth until I in Frame "unmuted" the volume.] Record did not
launch. Browse came up with its display window size significantly
exceeding the physical size of the XO screen.
'rpm -q kernel' attests to sloppy composing of the build.
With now more exposure to it, I still do not like the new toolbar
design. The XO has a *small* display screen. Now many Activity
capabilities (such as 'Edit' in Terminal) can only be invoked from a
secondary toolbar that drops down from the primary toolbar. The two
toolbars together take up a significant amount of XO screen real
estate. And each time the secondary toolbar needs to be shown or
hidden, it takes one *extra* click (after me having to move the
cursor off the part of the screen that I was doing my work on).
I notice that now Sugar 0.86 has been "upstreamed" into Rawhide.
I suspect that some Activities still need changing to fit 0.86.
