Hi Francois,

Red Sleeve behaves really well, I'm impressed. I am, by default, a 
debian user really and haven't used Red Hat based distros for a few 
years but so far so good. Like you, I don't like Ubuntu (in fact, I hate 
it) and if I wasn't intentionally trying to get used to Red Hat again, I 
would have put debian on the AC100.

With regard to speed, its fine. I have used kde4 on the AC100 with Red 
Sleeve and it is surprisingly good (I've never been a fan of kde4 so 
far) and I will stick with it if I don't succeed with TDE, though I do 
expect to succeed, eventually :) Gordon Bobic created some really good 
kernel patches enabling (completely safe) overclocking to 1200MHz 
without any hardware mods. 1450MHz with hardware mods.

Installing is a doddle, especially if you have already put Ubuntu on it. 
A rootfs is provided by RS.

If you want more detailed info, contact me off list.

Any question is easy if you know the answer!
