| I am currently running gOS Gadgets 3.x on my system with 2GHz of memory on a
| 1.8GHz Core2Duo Intel Processor. The laptop has 250GB of hard disk space
| partitioned into three separate drives.

| DistroWatch. So I said why not let me give it a try. Let me tell you I am

| distro is perfect for the Asus EEEpc, especially for newbies just joining
| Linux or for users who are just tired of Microsoft Windows. The apps are easy
| to use as they are on my MAC. The fact that gOS makes extremely good use of
| Wine 1.0 which make it easy to install Windows Applications. The install was
| quick and simple, which is very important for people just joining the Linux
| Community. Well I hope you enjoy the installation ScreenShots below as well
