I gave this a short spin today, and I have to admit it made me openly drool. I would have to really get into the nitty gritty before I would consider switching outright, but it has all the right tweaks already in place … binary Nvidia drivers, XFCE and XGL are default. And best of all, it’s blue.
The first hurdle, as always, would be the wireless card, but that might be worth fighting over. This card is so old and commonplace that I’d be surprised if it took a real effort to get going. More on this later.
