15 Actually, it's pretty stable. It doesn't have much customization
16 available (to be honest, I think you can only customize the background
17 image), but the shell and the applications are stable. I really like
18 it.
20 However, if you only want to "try it out", maybe it's not worth the
21 effort of installing from the overlay and all the unmasking and
22 compiling required.
