I am attaching an Open Office.ods Spreadsheet of tested Activities in 
Mirabelle 501 USB
(see method used below)
This should include all of the most recent versions of activities listed on

http://download.sugarlabs.org/activities/

Plus some downloaded from announcements on 
sugar-devel at lists.sugarlabs.org and other sources.
There about 140 on it.*
(The spreadsheet is sorted in alphabetical order for easy lookup of the 
activity number on this link)

Please Feel free to use this to help us test applications.
I have only done a preliminary inspection for starting and shutdown for 
these applications
in Mirabelle 0.88.0 sugar. I also have a column with quick comments...

Note: this USB is not a live USB. It was installed with livinst command 
to a 4GB Firefly USB
from a liveusb-iso-to-disk persistent 2GB USB.
so it is ext4 based.
I used an ACER Aspire ONE laptop 532h with 2 USB's
Boot 4GB USB
ASLO.xo 1 GB USB with all of the .xo files on it.
