I have an XO-1 that was setup to reboot every 4 hours. and mount an SD card.  
It didn't get a lot of use, but it did test the reboot process and make sure 
the WiFi worked.

The only problems I ever saw was that it would occasionally hang during boot 
because Linux couldn't talk to the SD card.  It was printing out a timeout 
message every second or two.  There was a short pause between messages.

I assumed it was a quirk in the firmware setup.  I'll try to collect some 
data if somebody wants to chase this.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
