I was impressed with its speed compared to Freespire, lightning fast,
and with its ease of setup.  When I first booted it took only three
key clicks for it to find the port to the internet (Eth0 card to
Router to Cable Modem) and configure it.  Less than 20 seconds and it
was online.  Also, when I tried several file types, .wav, .pdf, .jpg,
it found the correct program to run them and displayed the information
without prompting.  What I really like is the way it keeps you
informed with very robust instructions on screen and descriptions of
what it is doing and what to expect.  It never leaves you wondering
what its doing or what to do next.  BUT...I still havent got the
printer configured.
