well, I had fun getting it to install on a progeny machine (my laptop).
Mozilla still takes ages to load (the hard drive is allegedly quite
slow, must fiddle with that), and red-carpet won't run, so I can't install
evolution (grrr them making it dependent on red-carpet to download..
spose I could try to parse their xml files) (red-carpet core dumps
and I haven't been able to build it from source yet).
apart from that, it's lovely and maccy (curved corners)
