Pros: simple, stunning graphics
Cons: cant find one yet



I'm not the best person to review this as I'm somewhat of a novice, but on first go it behaved perfect as a live install, haven't got the nerve to fully install it as only just got openSuse behaving to my liking, but I'm gonna have to as this is so slick.
Still got to play with it to get Nvidia behaving on two screens, (why isn't there a distro with two screens in mind from the word go? It's the only thing that sends me back to windows, the dual screen one desktop thingy....any tips peeps?) but starts fast, sees all the hardware, lets me do all the stuff i need to (media whore, so films pics web etc etc).

Loving it.!
