    I installed the eeepc version in VirtualBox. It works but no internet. I have a wired ethernet setup.

    I used it almost exclusively for a couple of weeks.
    I liked it but it did have the odd bug here and there.

    Main reason I stopped using it is because there was no way to change the keyboard layout to British English.

    It's very good OS but don't support Persian as good as other languages.

    I've tried it for 2 months on virtualbox (For Application Testing ).

    Why would someone want to use a smartphone/tablet OS on their desktop computer?
    The only thing I know for certain is that I know nothing at all, for certain.

    Because it is simple?
    Because they can play android games on a bigger screen?
    And really it is hardly any different to using a regular desktop OS when actually installed on a computer.

    So I can sit comfortably like this, surrounded by 3 dogs and a ferret, on my sofa, and use Android, which nowadays with Office software and the huge market has better support than Linux...
