I just tried this. Its pretty buggy and slow. Definitely not production ready. My mouse would only work sometimes ans menus were pretty much a mixed bag when it came to working or not. Maybe its not for my hardware.
Interesting though and even on a usb disc, it still booted in about 10 seconds. Impressive stuff if the kernel could handle the hardware better.
