Have you considered adding Envy to the next CE release... Along with making Christian packages available you've also made it much easier for new Linux users to make the switch from Windoze. I have Nvidia cards in two of my PC's and the nvidia-glx drivers have been problematic for me on UbuntuCE (and regular Ubuntu/Xubuntu). Now it could be because I'm a noob, but an easier tool for noobs could be another good reason to consider adding Envy. Here's the link if you're not already familiar with it...

I stumbled across it as an included package in another distro I'd tried once, but I can't recall which one... It supposedly works for Nvidia and ATI, but I've only used it for Nvidia...

Sounds like it might be a nice addition. I am sure there will be some who dislike it due to its name. I checked the site out and it is just a play on words, but you know. :)

I am taking a look into it now.

Yeah, I know what you mean :).

Also, I've only used the text-based install, but it's worked for me every time.
