2 Desktop, you can choose between:

- Gnome (set as default, with remote desktop enabled without password.
You can disable it from applications - internet- desktop sharing);

Ya ves, hasta la p*lla ya de tanto mamoneo. Pero vamos, que me quedan dos telediarios aquí...
Que dice el lorenzo que aunque se la den que pasa tres pueblos de currarselo y meter a mano la info que falta, así que la pelota está en este tejado, no en el de Simon.

Any idea on the ETA for the XBMC version? All my attempts on building a functional xbmc failed miserably. I mean,  could compile it, but the performance for the H264/X264, 720p+ was just plain HORRIBLE, even with mali, cedarx et all active...

There are beta Versions of XBMC v13 out for ARM / Android. Don't want to flash my NAND again with Android, but would be
interesting if it runs on the CB2 or CT:

Hi guys,
is there a way to make this image writable by phoenixsuit/livesuite? It would make compatible even with mele (allwinners products wich are based on A20. A lot of more people could use it.
Is qbee-x based on the true unbuntu LTS? I see a lot of wrong advertised images which are 12.10 based (quantal) instead of 12.04

Never investigated phoenix suit... I think there is no need of it...
12.04 as far as Im concerned.
