The live distro boots in just 10 seconds and comes with the four tab minimalistic graphic interface, "Plate". According to an announcement by Chen Ping-Hsun, the new release supports various Eee PCs, Acer Aspire One, MSI Wind, Lenovo IdeaPad, Dell Mini and many more. Besides traditional Chinese, the distro is available in English, German, Japanese, Spanish and other languages.

At the moment, an installation program is available for Windows only. Linux users will have to boot from CD/USB or manually configure their own boot loader with, e.g., GRUB.
