"Interestingly, all of the things that make Presto a good
secondary OS are the same that would make Presto a good primary OS
on a netbook computer. After all, netbooks are optimized for
surfing the web and performing minor tasks. When we took a look at
the beta version of presto, we were impressed at how well the OS
worked and looked forward to the shipping version of the product.
But, Xandros seems to have dropped the ball and has turned the
shipping version of Presto into something that Beta testers were
not looking for. Xandros seems to have taken several steps back
with Presto 1.0 and has eliminated some of the features and much of
the speed that were found in the Beta version."
