"Yet it is the author's experience that such a killer application setup is very difficult to achieve with current GNU/Linux. In fact, total failure has so far been the result after many hours of attempts. Two popular distributions and 2 releases of those distributions where attempted: Ubuntu 8.04 hardy heron, Ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex beta, Fedora 9 and Fedora 10 beta. All failed miserably.

"This was not for lack of documentation. In fact, there is so much forum postings and documentation that it is difficult to find relevant information and appears to be mass confusion. What is found is either grossly out of date, applies to old versions of X-Windows or is current and up to date, applies to your distribution but simply does not work."
