Besides the good news that beta6 is pretty stable, I got to build the 
alternate iso:


and I must say this is a huge improvement from previous alternate builds:

  * All applications are installed
  * We have a look and feel similar to any ubuntu spin off
  * Welcome screen issue is fixed
  * Most files from /home/user are now available to the home folder of 
the live user.
  * Installation issues are expected to be fixed, since we use the 
default ubuntu installation method.

Issues to consider:

  * Some java applications (Geoserver, Geonetwork, Deegree, Geomajas) do 
not have launchers available in the menu "Geospatial", although they can 
be initialized through their startup scripts.
  * Some applications need su to run (we must have a deep look at 
  * There is a failure to load data into postgis and mysql due to user 
name issues.
  * Data symlink does not appear in home folder.
  * Live user is "xubuntu" instead of "user"

I would suggest to try it, you will like where this goes... :)
