Have installed about 10 Linux distros just for fun. ChaletOS is a quick install, fast booting, productive workspace OS which is fun to use and not complicated at all. Best Linux distro I've seen so far and really easy to leave MS behind.

Very speedy on my Core i7 system and works well on older AMD and Celeron systems. Running it on 3 systems now. Dual install with XP and Win7 works well with professional boot startup page. Thank you, it just works.

ChaletOS is the best Linux distro ever! It is lite, smooth, fast, easy to use, full-featured, and so beautiful! I really feel myself at home with ChaletOS. Many thanks and good luck to the developer.
