goodOS on virtualbox

In my search for a lightweight OS for a spare laptop which has fairly minimal resources to run a full OS. I tried installing goodOS on my virtualbox and am quite happy with the initial experience.

The process was fairly straight forward. Just downloaded the iso from http://gos1.losslessrecords.com/gos/gos-3.1-gadgets-20081205.iso. The download did take sometime though.

And used the iso to boot a new vm in virtualbox. Found it good. Will give it a try on the old laptop sometime next weekend. I might face some driver issues. Lets see.

Some screenshots below from running it in virtualbox.
