    Have to try this one, I'm a sucker for Linux Distos and BSD releases to a lesser extent.

    Yep, it IS very fast, boots up super fast too. I tried out the previous version and liked it a lot. Install is extremely quick also. Nice distro...

    Just installed the latest now... it's very fast. The install, after partitioning and setup, only took about 3 minutes. This is the KDE Full AMD x64 version. Boot up to the login screen in 20 seconds, then another 8 after that to load KDE. So boot to full usable desktop in 30 seconds max. It's really quite snappy in general also. It knew my ATI graphics card and I didn't have to install any drivers, nor did it even ask. It just works. 1920x1200 looking good.

    Going to tweak things now and play for a while. First impression is excellent.... :thumb:

    Runs great as always! :thumb:

    I just had to make "apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade" to have it! :D

    Enjoy...

    I do like it a lot. However, I'm about to try out Sabayon 4.0-r1 tonight. Looks extremely tasty and tempting..... ;)
