Amazing server. Running flawlessly with only 256MB of RAM. Well preconfigured, so it's ready to work out of the box. Easy to use: everything can be started with one command.

Generally I like the distro - very fast and very appealing. It has sufficient programs incorporated to be usable.
Try as I may I cannot for love or money install the thing onto a stick, because it simply doesn't list the stick in the installation menu. Only HD and swap and everything else that shouldn't matter is listed. What a shame. Of no use to me....
