Unboxing the XO-1

Opening XO-1

FedEx showed up at my door yesterday with a present for me. I recieved my XO-1. The packaging inlcuded 100% earth freindly cardboard. Here’s a picture of it in all of its glory.

XO-1 with Dell Laptop

As expected, the device is pretty small, rugged, and portable. I took a quick snapshot of it sitting in my mega-watt burning full size laptop.


I installed the battery and powered the XO-1 and to my surprise this one came with Windows XP on it. It must have been a test model, but no complaints here. (Just kidding, actually it did not have XP on it, but as a proof of concept I used rdesktop to log into a Windows PC. More about this later.)
