Yes I tried on my Virtual Box. The distro isn't mature yet. My nvidia cart isn't recognized, the updating system doesn't work (you have use synaptic to updating).
There is actually mate 1.8, but no Compiz, and on top of that the system is based on a mix of two versions of debian (wheezy and Jessie), a potentially risk of problems.
You had better wait the next point linux !

using mate 1.8 from testing repository disqualifies the distro. mate 1.8 is not finished yet. mozo doesn't work, I do not know if x-caja bug from 1.6 is fixed or not. there is also no bluethooth. I understand it as a joke or test for future releases (almost everybody can prepare similar home-brewed distro basing on standard debian in at least 5 minutes).

I installed WattOS R8 64bit on an empty partition and found it a mixed bag. Reported the two major issues I found with it (http://planetwatt.com/newforum/index.php?topic=26.0) on the WattOS forums. Found a solution to the issue of not being able to edit the "Applications Places System" menu in MATE 1.8 via a link to another site, but a solution to WattOS R8 refusing to accept my password to preform tasks requiring password authorization (Gdebi, Update Manager and VirtalBox for example) continues to elude me.. I'm not the only one who's experienced these problems, so even though WattOS R8 is a nice effort I'll happily stick with Point Linux 2.3.1 and its lack of such issues..
