Snowlinux 3.1 Review: Now Crystal got even better!

Filed under

Last month, during my experiments with Linux distros, I mentioned that on Snowlinux 3 Crystal, touchpad doesn't work. Even I couldn't get the touchpad settings on my Asus Eee-PC 1101HA. Possibly, the developers too noted the same and last week, the updated Snowlinux 3.1 with touchpad support got released. I did a live-boot on my Asus K54C laptop with 2.2 GHz Intel 2nd Gen Ci3 processor and 2 GB DDR3 RAM and later installed on the same.

Like Snowlinux Crystal, the release is in three flavors - Gnome 2, XFCE and E17. I downloaded the Gnome 813MB 32-bit ISO from the hosting site. Pretty much the desktop is similar to Snowlinux 3 and looks simple and elegant. It is built on Debian squeeze and is lighter on resources.
