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.
