Well for what it is supposed to do I must say it does it pretty well, as a Geographer myself I have tried OSGeo a couple of times when I need to use geospatial software on any PC without the need of installing anything

The GUI is decent, it does not have "eyecandy" however I must admit that is funtional and for me that is a priority for a work machine, also it could be just me but the lighter interface does help when using QGIS due less stress on the CPU and more snapiness in the menus

Overall I would recommended for any geographer or GIS analyst to have it as a backup just in case you need to do something on the go without having to worry about installing everything in every PC, we need more projects like this in Linux!

I did some research on how this would come over to a non-computer-savy user using a USB stick.
Some, but not much, configuration would be necessary.
:D
