Great to hear!

We haven't tested the build 160 yet but look forward to using it.

I highly recommend installing XFCE4 if you are not a command line master

yum groupinstall 'XFCE4'
yum groupinstall 'X Window System'

XS-150 didn't have all the necessary dependencies for X Windows to run
properly so we needed the second command. Don't know if the same applies
to XS-160

I am working on an Acceptance and Testing plan for the XO's that may be
useful to you.

One of these days I intend to write a sysadmin guide, one of these
days . . .

In general, the XS documentation is a mess. There are way too many ideas
and suggestions clouding what the XS actually does.

Good Luck, Rafael! I know you have been working very hard on this for a
very long time.
