Description

How stable is this? ive just follows the links for the website and downloaded both the ubuntu and fedora usb installs - both boot fine - ubuntu is slightly quick to boot than fedora, but fedora is the only one of the two to have the session, fine - i ge that, neither recognise the soundcards and both crash after about 5 minutes - neither link the music programs - both if you just hardreset or forceshutdown, dont reboot, - but ive had this with linux before, but ususal repair after a reboot these dont.
Ive ran on both a toshiba statlite pro l40 and an hp2175ea - have is missed something? I was looking for something more stable befor ei let the children on it? - they are currently using Puppylinux
very well both via usb and hdd installs.

unetbootin-windows-312
ubuntu-8.10-desktop-i386

Yes, I'd consider SoaS to be Alpha/proof of concept right now. I'd test a lot before I had children use it and limit what activities you use to what you know works.

I had it crash on a toshiba laptop after about 2 minutes. Its quite stable on my IBM think pad.

Okies here's what ive done to get it working on the laptop. I downloaded the latest XO-LiveCD_090121.iso and then used unetbootin-windows-312.exe to install it onto a usb stick instead of the cd and we've been using it now with all the pre-installed apps with out any issues or problems - except once when it just stopped for some reason and need a hard-reset. So anyone who wants to try it i recommend this.
