Great to see the hive of activity to get this out stable and usable with features. I tried two installation on a XO 1.75 and they went smoothly - not sure why on 2 occassions the XOs went "blank/dark" before reaching final stage that installation is successful. 

Would try XO 1.0 and 1.5 and 1.75 (with a fast SD card instead) later. Don't have XO-4 for testing :-(

Any good suggestion as to what external USB would fit well for external storage as I am getting one 1TB soon?

Also what about supporting plug & play AP access with a USB Wireless N USB Adaptor? I had a RPi with 16G Khan Academy and wireless assess on a cheap Adaptor is a breeze. Would love to have less wires - minus the USB-Ethernet adaptor and cables into an external AP.

Pity I could not join for chat. My best wishes to you all hackers!
