There's still work being done on Suspend & Resume so its still not
optimal. With luck they're closing in on the final issues.

The XO 1.75 runs vanilla Fedora compiled for ARM. All the standard
tools you know and love on Fedora are either already available on
Fedora ARM or soon will be. The code is no different and all the
various FOSS tools should work pretty much exactly as they do on
Fedora x86

Its not as wild out west as it was 12 months ago. Linaro have made big
in roads here and the releases for Arch, Debian and Ubuntu are
beginning to  look pretty good as well, even OpenSuse and Mandriva (or
one of the forks/derivatives) are moving towards support of ARM
