My first few hours with the Zonbu desktop…

Well I’ve been wandering around in my Zonbu virtual machine for a few hours now.

A few impression. It all workings surprisingly well. I’ve been able to do everything I’ve tried so far – webmail, download attachments, listen to Rhapsody, open images, watch video clips on youtube, look at flash based statistics, load my Nasdaq java based stock tracker. Everything.

At the moment the machine has access to a 2Ghz core on my AMD laptop. This weekend I’ll be running it on a Duron 1.1Ghz machine with 512Mb of real RAM, a very similar spec to the Zonbu box itself. There have been a few performance pauses (like oddly drop outs when Adobe Acrobat starts), but I think that might be the VMWare host as much as the Zonbu OS.

This is very encouraging.

P.S. If I get a chance I’ll post some instructions on all the steps necessary to make it work, their website isn’t all that clear.
