Hurrah! I found a bug in the beta, after using adduser trying to run Startx it refuses to unload the old startx file. This is after an install of the 701mb CD version. Cant figure out why, have run xconf as both root and the new username but hasnt fixed the issue.
It just wont let me fire up Startx as the new user, can run it as root just fine!
But other than that it is truly an awe inspiring release. Everything was working right out the box, the graphics card, the modem and the wifi card... Awsome!
