It's great if you want a machine that doesn't do much during the day.  I 
tried it out on a second partition for a while, but its nothing less 
than a fashionable distraction, is too downstream for my liking and has 
all the sheen of lipstick and nailpolish. Something to give your 
girlfriend, who isn't to particular about the fact that it slowly grinds 
to a halt as the code breaks down through lack of communication with the 
Ubuntu mainstream. There is a good reason for sticking with Ubuntu and 
tweaking whatever you have. I also have reservations about the 
possibility its an Irish plot to destroy Ubuntu in the long run.
