I have tested this distro on several different units, all varying in computing power. And on all the machines, GeeXbox performed well. It plays a wide viratey of audio, video, and picture formats. The keyboard controls are intuitive, but some of the features (volume control) didn't work so well. Anyways, check out the new GeeXbox which is coming out! It is quite an improvement!
