As an alpha release there are still bugs, notably some intel video
drivers have problems in this release.

 * The Restricted Manager notifies users about the availability of
   restricted drivers also on the live
   CD. ( 

 * Printing does not work in the live system. Once the system is
   installed, it works fine. As a workaround in the live system,
   execute this command: sudo aa-complain
   cupsd. (
