Xubuntu on OLPC X-1

Thanks for listening,
Well, apparently I better go from idea to use fedora with xfce, but it
becomes unfeasible to use sd card in each device and therefore we
restricted the internal memory of the notebook.
I believe a teacher contact Ricardo Carrano can I get a case of successful
use of these notebooks.
The most important thing now is to get a developer key for me to use the
OLPC OS Builder and leave the system as clean as possible.
Thanks again for the answers.
