I’ve been using an XO with Gentoo Linux as working system for more than a 
year, now, and it works very well (coding, writing, reading PDFs). Since the 
first thing I always did in sugar was switching to the console, I installed 
just xmonad and emacs + some development stuff (for example boost and similar 
which are quite huge). 

If anyone is interested, I can post the update-scripts. 

Best wishes,
