    Will get five stars once sound works! Is there anyway to speed this up a little more? Especially runs sluggish remotely through vnc. Other than that, LOVE it. Fun to play around with! Def not a desktop replacement, but who know how much more powerful phones will be 5 years from now!

    I now have a working Debian armhf install on my Asus Transformer tablet. It took absolutely zero effort on my part. There are a few hitches in the install itself, but those are likely issues from either the distro end or PRoot. I have a full xfce environment, Epiphany web browser, and I even managed to install LibreOffice and InkScape. This app is awesome!

    It's super easy to install, if you want a browser open root terminal and type in 'apt-get install iceweasel' and there you go!

    The main problem is that the downloader is completely unreliable. If you have the good fortune that it downloads the 220M tar file then it will probably work for you. However when I downloaded it, my tablet slept and caused the download to fail dozens of times. Every time I had to start over from scratch, even if I downloaded 195M, which is as far as I have ever gotten on my tablet. Then the a
