Mavrothal was glad that his persistence plus the help of developers finally led to this release. He acknowledges the help of "01micko with crucial input from Mitch Bradley, Anna, Paul Fox, Edie Owens and ttuuxxx".

Mavrothal continues: XOpup-1 is based on Puppylinux 5.1.1 with several customizations to fit the hardware. In addition to the custom kernels and under the hood optimizations, it includes custom desktop, quickpet, first-run screen, battery monitor, touchpad widget for XO-1, swap-file maker and power management. It also includes other goodies like the free-memory deamon, the lupu-511 "light" version of the Midori browser as default, and all the standard Puppylinux 5.1.1 applications and programs.
