im actually fiddling with it now. so far i have seen nothing missing at all,
and it has included not just x but a number of applications.
It is very much a full linux installation with office and internet basics all
running. much like gentoo deciding to show up knoppix for their install cd.
i think this is a great ide agiving you a full workstation that you can deal
with even if it doesnt have "EVERYTHNING" you even need. it has enough to keep
you functional. while you build your main system or rebuild your main system.
very nicely done devteam very nice.
although a little bit of prettyness would be on the oputput tab to add some
scrollbars. took me a few min to realis i could just click in the box and roam
about with my keyboard to watch what its doing.
