I am dogfooding a bit with the Fedora SoaS.  My Thinkpad X40 under XP has
trouble connecting to  the wireless at school so I've been using SoaS to
take notes during class.  It has no problem connecting  to the wireless,
using browse to let me take notes in google docs, and this week I was able
to download and open word docs.  I can read gmail.  I can play with turtle
art if I get board.  :)

Yes, we need SoaS to work with the XS It will not be ready for any
deployment until we can back up and restore to an XS.  Its just too easy to
lose a USB stick and then have lost all your data.
