Side tangent. Maybe we should stop holding ourselves accountable to the XO-1.
OLPC doesn't produce these any longer. I don't even think you can get
a XO-1.5 and the information on XO-1.75 makes it appear to be limited.
Efforts appear to have shifted to ARM based laptop/tablet devices
(XO-4). There's the whole Android angle now to, which frankly makes a
lot of sense for them. Even the latest OLPC OS development release is
based on Fedora 20 and is targeted at the XO-4 hardware.
I understand the underlying OS on the XO-1 is Fedora based. However,
the latest recommended update is Fedora 17 based and the latest
available update (which is already noted as slow) is Fedora 18 based.
It was a major downstream Fedora remix and somewhat a successful one
at that. But the likelihood of OLPC XO-1 actually being impacted by
changes made in Fedora 23 seems to be small. They've moved on. So
If you want to bring up arguments about ARM impacts to the XO-4, fine.
At least that seems somewhat relevant.
