Good to know that, but my experience with the OS is quite discouraging. The 8-1.1 kernel based release I was able to install, but it froze at the login screen. Apparently, letting the installer update the system while it was being installed made it eventually unusable. That seems to be a known problem.

A 8-2.1 kernel based testing release was just broken: its installation was perceivably quicker, but something just went wrong before the last packages were installed.

There's something that has to be done about the partitioner: it takes too long to do anything with it and does a lot of useless grinding for a very long time for no reason at all.
