I do like the way it (or its config stuff) looks.  It's very Debian-ish
from what I've seen.  However, it doesn't appear to grok existing *BSD
installs very well.  Maybe I'm just not getting it yet.

I'm still playing with it.  On the upside, after a reinstall, my mouse
is no longer invisible.  :-)  Yay.

Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
