The last time I checked it out, it couldn't boot on real hardware, neverthless on a VM it booted almost instantly, responsiveness was immediate and overall I think it could be the best desktop operating system if only it had software and drivers written for it. Back in my testing days it had just a bunch of programs, including Firefox. Because of that it was far from being useful as a daily driver.

It booted here on metal I don't use VMs and actually played music but it really is just nostalgia  but yes it was blazingly fast

It's a blast from the past, but as I couldn't get WiFi working, it was basically hamstrung for me. Will try again if they ever get out of alpha/beta status.
