So another day, another way of looking at my setup. Eurolinux was on one of my other machines for some time, hoping to get a stable ground for vmware workstation. That exploded in my face, so it was a short lived thing.
But by now I've already gotten rid of VMWare Workstation on Linux altogether, replacing it with virt-manager/kvm. That opens up the possibility to check how well Eurolinux 9 Desktop would work on my Slimbook.
