I checked out the Web site, and am unable to evaluate exactly what the DVD
contains. I am not likely to download it, as 2 gigabytes makes for one huge
download. I always take the easy way out and get my DVDs from osdisc.com.
Alas, Shackbox is only available as a download from their site. A quick
Google check showed that a few glitches need to be ironed out. Live/CDs, or
LiveDVDs, can be memory killers.

I would like to compare the software list on Shackbox against what is
available from Ubuntu's repository. The Windows software is an interesting
addition. If they are running under Wine, you would definitely need a bit of
memory and a faster processor. Emulation does not exactly improve

I sure hope their packaging of Shackbox is better then there Web site.
