IntroductionWhat is white and can't connect to the internet? It really is snow joke.
The description of Snowlinux on distrowatch reads as follows:
Snowlinux is a set of Linux distributions based on Debian's latest stable release and featuring four different desktop environments - GNOME, KDE, LXDE and Xfce. It aims to be user-friendly, incorporating many useful tweaks and carefully selected software applications. The project also develops a separate, Ubuntu-based edition featuring the MATE (a GNOME 2 fork) desktop.
For this review I decided to use the Xfce edition which is based on Debian's latest stable release.
The machine I installed Snowlinux onto is an Acer Aspire One D255 netbook.
