    check out those beryl-like desktop effects... NICE! i like the gnome desktop better than the KDE desktop, just a personal preference.

    Lately I am leaning toward KDE myself.. Glad they came out with a live cd finally, this is one super nice distro, on the top of my list along with PCLOS.

    It's very light and compact. It lacks some of the "advanced features" of GNOME/KDE, but that doesn't bother me.

    How is the look and feel? Is it significantly faster?

    Have you tried ZenWalk? It's a pretty nicely done Xfce oriented distro...

    It's a little faster than KDE/GNOME. It's more noticeable with low amounts of memory (<512 MB). It feels very ergonomic.
    Looks interesting. Thanks :)
    End of offtopic :D
