It would be nothing less than irresponsible to encourage you to drop FC2 and 
potentially "The Planet" to try this out just yet.  In alpha ratings...this 
distro for audio is like...{what comes before the dawn of time...hmmm}  not 
even up to pre-alpha testing yet.  I have sent a message to the head 
developer and await his response / enthusiasm / support on the whole thing.

 Now the distro is pretty solid in terms of it's operation. It's only 1 iso 
download which is nice. The main desktop is KDE and currently they have TWM, 
FVWM and Xfce, although I have not been able to get Xfce working. Gnome is 
there but has to be added and my attemps at apt-get for it have been no good. 
It does not seem to install properly. This thing has been tuned for KDE 3.3 
and it is snappy. 

Albeit I might be a bit premature in announcing this as a potential distro, I 
just mostly want to get a quick poll from who might show support so I can 
report that fact back to the Yoper gurus.
