The LiveCD was nice to see if it would actually work on my setup, not really all that usefull after that. Gave it to a coworker who had the same specs as my system and it didn't work for him (weird), so I saved him a rather frustrating weekend.

I've installed xgl using Suse 10.1 but that gave me problems with the video-overlay (no TVcard and no full screen video), tried Ubuntu 6.x release 5 but the performance was crap. So now I'm installing it with Gentoo.. should be done in another day or two :)

I haven't tried the live cd, but my current gentoo install was installed with Kororaa. Installing gentoo the normal way was educational the first time, after that it was just a hassle, and Kororaa made the process so much faster and I didn't have to pay so much attention to it. Its nice, although I think Gentoo now has a graphical installer of its own, no? I didn't even know they had a live cd, I'll have to check it out.

Yeah, I tried the 2006.0 CD with the installer (which I do believe is made by Kororaa) and it kept crashing when I tried installing a complete (i.e. office, firefox, mediaplayers etc..) system, so I had to do a minimal install and do the rest the old fashion way.

I had watched a video of the XGL and thought it was pretty fantastic...didn't know a distro had it incorporated already. Until I read this thread...

20 minutes later I have Kororaa running on my system and WOW this is pretty fantastic. It's about the same as ubuntu application wise...but this xgl is just...so pretty. It's more eye-candy than true utility...but its pretty neat. I'll be showing the guys in the office on monday...
