    1. Have now spent 5 hours trying to get this os loaded to my laptop (at present running open SUSE).
      No problem with download for live CD, problem arises when you try to install, programme dies on you.

      I assume I am not doing anything wrong, but if this is latest version, maybe should try an earlrer one.

      Shame, because what I have seen looks good
