This alpha is very spiffy, and I'm glad to be participating.
That said, when I tried to do a traditional install in X (the hd install), xterm closes before the install script gets to the point where it asks which bootloader you want to use. I rebooted and threw "install" at the boot prompt, and using the menu there the install proceeded with no problem (in fact, I'm using it right now on my laptop).
When I right click in DFM, there's a circle drawn on the desktop... not sure what that's all about.
The little CPU usage meter is nice in the bottom right corner, but I think it's best left off by default. With the meter on the desktop, it's a tad redundant. Right-clicking it doesn't get rid of it, and that might frustrate newer users.
Oh, and for Firefox, it would load a bit faster if that RSS feed was pulled from the bookmarks. Just a thought.
All in all, I think the direction for DSL 4 is a good one. Besides the install issues, I could see this being quite palatable for the masses:cool:
Oh, and for reference, I'm using a Toshiba 1555CDS Notebook (380MHz, 190MB RAM)
