Cool, I had bought a Launchpad when they came out (2 yrs ago?) and was able to
compile the GCC bits for it on my XO-1.5. But had not tried to use my XO-1.
You probably have seem the proposed plans to make an XOduino and XOstick.
Thanks for writing notes for the XO-1/Launchpad. I think I noted some
intermittent issues with the kernal/usb/Launchpad where it would create a
/dev/TTYACM01 and then 02 (I dont recall the specifics) and when I tried to
access the device via Python, my code was referrring to the wrong device node.
And I had to disconnect the usb cable for it to work.
