    Although they have said it will be released as software likely later this year (around the same time as Win7 maybe?) with the H2 2010 timescale for being available prepacked onto hardware with the above manufacturers.
    So hopefully we will be able to test it out a bit sooner. I certainly will be trying it out on my little ASUS eeepc 704 as soon as it becomes available, since its so easy to revert to original settings.

      sounds good 🙂 I am thinking about testing it on my Laptop when its available, but not sure how it is going to be released, only for netbooks or both netbooks and laptops ?
