It looks great!

Only thing here re the G2 editor ( uh... as welll as the NM1 editor ).. these apps do need a certain screen real estate. What is the resolution of these displays?

Aren't Apple and ASUS working together at the moment to bring out an OS X version?

That resolution sounds a bit ropey Confused

I installed debian on the old 7G surf and it worked pretty well. I had use pretty big buffers to get rid of audio dropouts. It's a pretty good field recorder - the built in audio interface has crazy dc offset for some reason though. It would be perfect for a librarian or sequencer. I was able to run softsynths on it too.
