SOAD is an abbreviation from 'SuSE On Active Diet'. It's based on the latest OpenSUSE release (11.0) and aimed to deliver current svn code of Enlightenment-DR17 and Enlightenment-DR16 to the audience. Tried to demonstrate that OpenSUSE could be 'slim and fast'. There's no need to run KDE/Gnome/Xfce or any other 'resource hungry monster'.
