I've been tinkering with the XO and it a nice machine. Etoys run fine 
but there are a few rough edges.

Quiting Etoys is always a little painful because it saves the current 
project and that takes what feels like a long time. Could that be done 
in another way, like leaving the Etoys process and let it finish in the 
background ? ( I know it's possible to move the mouse to a corner and 
get the Sugar border thing but if it was done automatically it would 
give a less painfully slow feel :-))

Getting stuff into Etoys from the Journal is hard. Say you have two 
images, a sound etc. you want to use in a project it's not obvious how 
to do that. I guess copy and paste from the Journal is the Sugar way, 
but I'm not fully convinced. How hard would it be to show Journal 
contents in the filtering FileList tool ?
