    Had to do a Google so I even knew what Splashtop was. :oops:

    Starting to peek back into the world of Linux since I was given a couple old lap tops.

    Installed Wolvix on an old PII 333 and pumped up the ram to a wopping 192MB. :D It connected to my LAN and surfs the net right out of the box. That is as far as I have gotten.

    Ran across Presto and thought I would give it a try as a dual boot on the second lap top that has a bit more :rolleyes: under the hood. :D

    Nothing new I think. Just a well confectioned light linux distribution. The bad thing is that their web site tries to pass you the idea they have created something new and revolutionary. If you pay attention you will not find the word linux on their homepage ( same for "dual boot" ). Indicates a clear strategy.

    This is my first impression...

    If your willing to reflash your BIOS with say openBIOS or the like, you can get better boot/load times than Presto with your favorite Linux distro or even Windows.

    Paying for Linuxo_O I won't switch if I have to buy it. Nope, nope, nope.
