Run quite well, on what planet? It locks up the XOs tested here with  
regularity, and is now on my 'don't bother testing' list (until  
there's another attempt). It's a memory pig, it's still got a UI for  
nerds/geeks, and does not integrate well with the rest of Sugar (no  
Journal entries/resuming, ghost frame icons).
