I can only find an EXE install file download...

I had an older version of this that came with my motherboard, but it couldn't get the resolution right.

These days, I spend more of my boot time waiting for the BIOS than loading arch + xfce anyway ;)

I had an HP mini netbook that came with HP's branded version called QuickWeb. It was enabled/disabled via a Windows executable and as far as I could tell that was the only way to install it.

It was pretty nice all things considered, and I absolutely loved the skin/theme.
