They did, but due to the fact that the netbook edition was a much more niche distro it didn't have such a wide negative impact. 10.10 on the netbook was an utter disaster. It was completely unusable because the performance of mutter back then was shocking (compiz was only used from 11.04 onwards). It was especially bad in the betas, where the UI practically locked up while simply navigating it.

Just go for it! thumb.gif It's been my dream for a long time now, and I just barely found the time to do it. It's a lot of commitment up front, but definitely worth it.

Actually setting up the system is easy. What takes a bit more time, but is still easy, is customizing all the tiny little aspects of your system to your preference.

Which takes just as long as any setup in any other distro, even more reason to just go for it thumb.gif

I know nothing about virtualization, but why are they running inside QEMU? Why not something like Virtualbox?

QEmu will just be the emulation layer, it's likely sat on top of KVM which is inside the Linux kernel and also (IIRC) offers paravirtulisation which VBox does not. So you'd expect much better performance from KVM+qemu than VirtualBox (which in all honestly I wouldn't recommend for production use).

Though someone please correct me if I'm wrong smile.gif
