Looking quite good :)

Issues I noticed:

* Write, Read, and Etoys do not appear in the home view by default.
They should be marked as favorite from the beginning.

* There is no sound in Etoys. 
Pulseaudio is running but padsp is not installed (which Etoys uses to fall back on OSS when it detects PA).
To test, click the little red car icon in the screen's top right corner, then click the yellow exclamation mark button in front of the "Car make sound" tile. You should hear a croak if it is working.

* Shut down does not finish.
I ran the iso image directly in VirtualBox. Shutting it down leaves a message "Shutting down..." in the screen center, but it does not power off.

Thanks for prodding us to test ;)
