I have a recently set up Hotmail account that apparently comes with Windows Live software. Opera won't open this one Hotmail account. The Hotmail interface finally gave me an error message that I need to allow cookies on the browser, specifying IE and Firefox, but not Opera. I checked the cookies setting in Opera, and cookies are allowed unconditionally.
Opera fonts still leave something to be desired, as some letters contact adjacent letters ("c" "d" "g" in particular).
Opera fonts are unusually small in places. Inconsistent sizes.
There is no "Show Desktop" icon on the panel in LXDE. I consider this little toggle essential to managing windows.
A youtube video caused CPU usage to go to near 95%. A problem with multitasking maybe? A youtube video that can be played onsite at a channel does not show an image, is completely gray and non-functional. I visited a youtube video from youtube Favorites and I get an error about Adobe Flash Player not being right. I close the error message and video plays mostly okay, some skipping, especially when another window is operant (multitasking).
DVD played okay in Xine, and CD played okay in XMMS using Play Location: /mnt/cdrom
The scroll lag I am seeing in Opera is a bit disappointing, as I have installed VL Light on a P4 / 2.0 GHz computer.
Suggestion: dump Opera, use Seamonkey instead. I read a recent review of mini distros that included Zenwalk with DSL, TinyMe, Puppy, etc. How large is ZW iso, 470 MB? DSL and Puppy have less than 100 MB iso, yet they manage to use a Mozilla browser. SliTaz, with 25 MB iso, uses Bon Echo (Firefox?).
