I don't think that is much of a case yet, since I see little change
getting CentOS on them. First of all, because they require very fine
tuning wrt. system requirements and power management. Secondly, I
don't think kids will replace the preinstalled Fedora-ish installation
with CentOS. You need someone higher up the chain to do that.

The XO-1 has 1 GB flash memory, 256MB RAM, and a tiny screen
resolution. It's hard to squeeze a useful system into that, without
also providing and maintaining an interface like Sugar.
