i'm an awesome user of about 6 months as well. saw it first time about 2+ years ago at a plone hackathon, chaoflow  was using it. havent looked back when i finally got around to going full linux on my laptop. i've basically closed my macbook pro for good now i think.
it will take you some time to set it up to your tastes, just like the article states. i went at it step by step, just implementing any single component as i felt i needed it. you can view the shortlog of the road from standard distro rc.lua to my own personal heaven at . haven't really felt a need to further tweak the configuration for about the last 3 months, everything is just smooth.
and the name of this thing is just... awesome. you can't argue that.
