Nice review right from the About page, congrats. Just like any other distro, a repeat of Debian/Ubuntu. Seen it, pass on.

It's built right on top of Xubuntu 12.04. Just another Xubuntu clone. Plus it's slow. I still had to use "nomodeset" to get to the Live desktop. So it isn't configured very well. If a Windows user tries this, it will be like they are lost in a dark cave without a torch.

Here's the Screens:

Plus I wasn't reviewing it. I was posting about that they released it. If I were to review it, I would put [Review] in the title. But there is nothing to review about this OS. It's just a Xubuntu clone but slower and Thunar doesn't work well. I couldn't even get print screen to work, I had to install gnome-screenshot. That also didn't work well. The first screens I took with it I had to modify in Gimp, just to get them to be viewable. This clone needs shelving or at the very least taken back to the drawing board and reworked from the ground up.

So, my posts on Linux aren't welcome? Is that what your saying?

Not saying it is or isn't. If we post every distro update on here, then we might become distrowatch...

Well, I don't post every distro update. But, I will stop posting about anything unless I have an OS issue or am replying to other peoples threads. That alone will keep the peace.

I think it would be a little annoying if someone posted about every distro update, especially when it comes to the obscure ones, but I don't have a problem with people posting about distro releases if they bring something new and interesting to the table. While I agree with your ultimate conclusion that this particular distro isn't very well implemented, thanks for posting about it; I had never heard of it before! We want (or, at least, I want) Neowin's Linux section to be inclusive and informative, even if the other OS sections don't share the same ethos. Thanks for your contribution!
