I'm also finding the recent GNOME iso un-testable on the XO for the 
reasons you mention.  However, when I tested an earlier version of the F10 
live iso that Jeremy Katz produced for the XO, even without swap it was 
very functional and at least fairly usable.  (It was too slow, but nowhere 
near as slow as the current iso, and it didn't crash or freeze.)

Upshot: XFCE might well be better, but my guess is that GNOME is not the 
first-order problem here given the earlier success.
