Pros: Languages and software chosen
Cons: it doesn't really work



I tried this distro on two computers:
With the first it couldn't work because it didn't cope with the old VGA-card.
With the second a new laptop this wasn't a problem.
There was an icon from skype but it din't react at all.
Firefox worked but had problem to install Flash-Plugin.
I could neither really find a menu nor a button to shut down (log out,...).
For a beginner this must be a horror and he probably would never try linux again.
