Well obliviously its not just me doing this, and you can think what you want. By the way the site is not finished yet I think you probably could have figured that out by looking at it? I also don't see how you can make that judgement when you haven't even seen screen shots or anything of the project yet? Why dont you wait until the Alpha comes out give that a try and then give your opinion. :whistle:


When you provide such screen shots, or even a modicum of information beyond "we're debranding everything", I'll reassess my position. Until such a time, my opinion remains.

So like many others before you took stuff from Mac OS X' Aqua, then you took other stuff from Windows Aero, smashed them together and there you have it: Linux distro #874.126.726!

Anything other than an obvious mockup?

Like it says in the origional post, we will be posting our progress, and screenshots as they come. We have a about 45% complete UI as of now, and we will be ready to show everyone the near final UI in 1-2 weeks. The UI for the Alpha/Beta build will be 95% complete, the other 5% will be for suggestions, bug fixes, improvements, other elements etc. If you, or anyone have suggestions, or questions please post them!

Next time it would be a better idea to start a thread when you actually can show us something. Right now it's all rather vague and the website isn't telling us much either.

We want to start this topic to show everyone some development, FAQ, QnA, Previews, Alpha/Beta Build, etc., etc. I will be uploading some FAQ's very soon, and I will talk to the team about uploading a pic of the OS's current state, but we want to build some hype also. Dont want to let the cat out the bag too soon. ;)

Your website is painfully slow, its not going to handle more than a few people trying to access it at the same time, once you release the Alpha. Consider posting mirrored links to the download in here rather than your site, once it is released.

Yeah, I thought so also I am going to contact my hosting company. I thoguht it was just my connection at first (its been pretty slow lately) but apparently others are experiencing it also. Thanks for the feedback!

i'm glad it's based on linux as then you have the freedom to mold it to whatever you want but on MS it would of been a doomed project.

Hope it turns out great! Would love to dual boot it once it's released, depending on how it turns out.

So what's the point in starting this thread right now when you have basically nothing to tell us and zero to show us? I don't get it.

I don't think there will ever be a point where they is actually anything to show us. If they've been working on it since July, are only 45% done and reckon they're going to get 50% more done in the next couple of weeks, it's probably safe to brand this "vaporware".

This.
I'd love to be proven wrong, though, as his mockup does indeed look quite nice.

Can't stand these pointless threads. Start one if you actually have something to say or show, if you don't don't.
