This is another baby step that's keeping my excitement growing.
I installed your new snapshot on a 4 gig USB drive using Fedora's
Liveusb-creator. I then I did quick boot tests on the following, which all
booted up:

Asus Eee PC 701 (no wifi, cramped screen layout)

Intel Classmate 2 Celeron (wifi worked and I was able to use Browse, cramped
screen layout)

Intel Classmate 3 Convertible (no wifi, screen much roomier)

On all: the cursor was invisible to start. It appeared after I navigated to
the Journal and opened the detail view of an entry. Speak didn't work.

While I had wifi on the Classmate 2, I downloaded Walter's TAPortfolio 17.
It seemed to load fine on all three machines, but the bottom part of the
tabbed palette was clipped on the EeePC and Classmate 2 making some of the
pieces impossible to retrieve.

Well, that was what I did in an hour. Looking forward to testing more.
