Wanted to try hardy-alpha6. Downloaded the iso. As I did not want to
burn a cd and install it, thought o trying it as a VM.

* Tried kvm to run it and got a blank screen. The command I used was

   kvm -cdrom hardy-desktop-i386.iso -boot d

* Tried VirtualBox. could boot and play around. But, could not change
  the screen resolution.

The overall look and feel of the distro is quite good.   

I tried running evolution and was frustrated. The window size is bigger
than the screen res and I cannot resize it. The same patter continues
and it is impossible to do anything. Is there a way to get round this
problem? IMHO, this is a bad UI design :-(
