    Isky,

    Super glad you got some functionality out of it!

    Hopefully we'll optimize these graphics in the near future.

    If you want to tell us about what you like about CloudReady, we'd love to hear from you!

    Just to update...took the plunge and installed CloudReady on a new SSD. Seems to have resolved some of the minor issues I faced running it off a usb stick (wasn't shutting down properly, occassional hangs and stutters). So far, everything has been pretty smooth sailing. Didn't install the first time around, but managed to work during round 2.

    Had previously disabled hardware acceleration thinking that it would improve the heat from the apu, but so far with h.accel on (and C6 power state reenabled in the bios), the heat seems to be managable. Boot time is not quite 8 seconds, more like 20 even with the SSD, but once on, performance is relative fast and smooth thanks to 6B of ram.

    Octane 2 score for the Brazos e450 was 6200, not that great but acceptable. Maybe the drivers on the newer kernels might speed things up, but so far, I'm quite happy with it. Will try to set up dual boot in the next few days.
