The XO is an incredible little machine -- but with the extra layer of
'sugar' to make it sweet for kids, that actually decreases its
useability as a general amater/data/packet machine.   It looks like
the eeePC is the current leader as far as cute little systems goes...
My XO is going to the nephews in Peru and I'll have a different
personal solution.
