English version of the eComStation 2.2 Demo CD

What is the eComStation Demo CD ?

The eComStation Demo CD is a way to demonstrate the look and feel of the eComStation desktop.
It will boot directly from CD and cannot be installed onto harddrive, it runs entirely in system memory.
Another popular name for this approach is "Live CD" (like Knoppix for example).
The advantage is that your current system will remain untouched, the disadvantage is that the memory
requirements are quite steep (at least 160 MB of system memory).
The normal version of eComStation can be installed on computers with at least 64 MB of memory.
(see System Requirements).
You can find a review of the eComStation Demo CD at ToastyTech

Please note

The eComStation 2.2 BETA Demo CD enables you to test if eComStation 2.2 will work on your hardware. You can enable SMP support in the 'menu for own settings', however, this may not work under all conditions. The retail product does not exhibit this problem and will properly support multiple CPU cores on SMP systems.
The only supported virtual machines for this Demo CD are Parallels Desktop and Microsoft Virtual PC.
