You can now test the Linux operating system and desktop environment. It's as easy as ABC.

Simply click on "Start Linux". In a separate window, a complete Linux system will start on your PC, without requiring an installation.

Personally I haven't succeeded at testing it out, but apperantly anyone can.

Wow! That's something new. I'm trying it out now but apparently the desktop wont start. Either that or its really very very laggy.

I've successfully tried it out. Extremely laggy, but it works. Got shots here.

I was just trying to test it again, but I got message saying that too many users online, to try again later.

Screentshots look cool. I guess it's a neat way for new users to see at least what Linux looks like.

I guess it is back online. I found it to be just as fast as Terminal Server or VNC. Got a shot here.
