Sources such as the Squeak swiki say to download Etoys from Squeakland
(http://www.squeakland.org/download/), but that is where I only find
downloads for Windows, Mac, Debian Linux and a Linux RPM. The release
notes suggest these are complete implementations of Squeak. The release
notes also describe a universal edition for the XO, but I don't see how
to get it.
