Looks pretty cool. Supposed to be released on Monday. Runs off Ubuntu 7.1. Should be pretty interesting.

It has been out for a good while. It's short name is gOS, and it's not developed by Ubuntu. Actually the development is pretty slack from what I've seen and heard. I believe it's only based on the Ubuntu kernel..don't quote me though. It runs the Enlightenment window manager, which is similar to Flux. The Everex PCs sold at Walmart are being sold with that same OS.

Personally I wouldn't recommend if, but if it looks like what you'd want then go for it. I prefer a full install of 7.10, though.

Looking forward to something a little more promising than this.
