    2424LiveCD and first boot performance: After an initial installation or a boot into LiveCD mode, some background tasks are executed to finish the installation setup. This is known to degrade performance. On harddisk installs this usually is not a problem as the tasks are done quickly. In LiveCD mode and also when booting from USB the performance hit is more prominently visible due to the usually bad seek performance on CDs and the slow write back of small files on USB devices. Since the CD is read-only, this setup takes place on every start of the LiveCD. On writable media it will only be done once, so further boots shouldn't experience the same delays.

     26Font rendering in this release is not optimal. Due to the uncertain situation about patents, the official release has known to be patented code disabled. This sadly includes hinting code used by FreeType that would provide better looking font rendering if enabled. Once the situation is better understood and a decision has been made these technologies might get re-enabled for official releases.
