Pimp OS is one of the best ways to get into mining. I struggled through the usual pitfalls of imaging and getting the key to work. Pimp staff was very responsive and patiently answered each of my questions.
Pimp OS has the feel of an Enterprise platform, It can scale very well horizontally.
The individual profiles makes setting up a new miner with a new pool a snap.
Load the OS, edit your wallet, launch the miner.
