DreamLinux Live CD Review

[ Thanks to Matt D. for this link. ]

"Right away, as the hype and hot air came oozing off this distro, I could not believe my eyes. On a machine that I have run no less than 13 distributions on, for the first time, I'm looking at what appears to be 640x400 resolution. This is inexcusable, considering no other distro has ever had this problem before. Thankfully, I have already done my partitioning prior to this, so a minor inconvenience like not being able to see the lower half of the installer is something that can be overcome enough to allow this review to continue. To be ultimately fair, the user who understands resolution challenges with Linux can enter the boot command to assign the preferred resolution, but for most people, this is not going to happen. Moving on...

"The installer is really well done, and other distros should be taking notes. Big applause to DreamLinux on this, seriously...!"
