You have no idea what you are talking about at all OLPC uses a stock
Fedora system with only the kernel being different and Fedora has ARM
support for quite sometime now

OLPC now uses a stock fedora process, but there have been many times when people attempted to trim bloat (very important on a machine with 1G flash and 256M ram) only to be told "but we have to do it this way because that's how it's done in Fedora"

Fedora is not a immutable system and OLPC folks have commit access to the
Fedora repository and can work with the maintainers to change things to be
suitable for both as they have done that many times in the past to the
point that nothing diverges except a few patches for the kernel and your
quote needs a citation

"... and your quote needs a citation"

And your post needs punctuation.

I'm sorry. It rhymed. I couldn't help myself. :)

"CPU and Architecture Target
The baseline ARM CPU architecture that we have chosen to support is
ARMv5TE..."

Uh, that's not much of help on ARMv7 machines. Yes, the code runs, but it
doesn't really take advantage of the HW (NEON etc).
