Correction: there isn't a firewire port on the MM20.

I've bought one of these. The EmperorLinux guys installed Fedora Core 2 on it. I love it! Works perfectly. I'm using the EmperorLinux 2.6.7 kernel, GNOME desktop. I get about 260fps from glxgears, and 3D games work fine.

If you buy a Meteor, David Cafaro did a great writeup on getting Fedora Core 2 working swimmingly.

About the slowness of installing OpenOffice.org, I bet this is really due to hard disk speed more that CPU.

As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.
