There's No System Like Linux for the Holidays

,----[ Quote ]
| Holiday shopping season is about to hit full swing, and personal computers 
| already rank high on many people's wish lists. If you're going to give the 
| gift of a new PC, should you consider giving one with Linux? If the receiver 
| is a tech-savvy individual, it may be the perfect gift, and the growing 
| availability of preloaded machines means setup headaches are easily avoided.

| The gPC is one of the first Linux-based desktop machines to be offered for 
| sale by a major retailer.

| Now gOS the OS powering the gPC is a unique OS. While I said it is a 
| customized version of Ubuntu, the word 'customized' is an understatement. gOS 
| highlights and encourages users to use web applications instead of the 
| traditional software for their day to day computing tasks.   



gOS Unboxed: Should Microsoft Worry?

| Microsoft's rivalry with Google heated up considerably this past year when 
| rumors surfaced that Google might release its own operating system to compete 
| with Windows. Has Google finally jumped into the fray with its own OS?  


A short look at gOS

| So after downloading the gOS Live ISO onto my Debian Etch system I started 
| Innotek’s VirtualBox, bound the freshly downloaded ISO as a CD-ROM, made a 
| 4GB virtual hard disk image for installing it, gave that virtual computer 
| 256MB of RAM, and started...   


Gosh, gOS is good

| I really liked gOS. It's a cute little system with lots of functionality and 
| great looks. It works well and is fast and stable on my laptop. It should 
| work on any computer that any other Linux supports. Enlightenment is an 
| impressive desktop environment, and the iBar is a low-overhead way to blend 
| cool effects with needed functionality. I think users will like it.    


ReviewLinux.Com: gOS is worth looking into....

| Everybody is going Green. I take a quick look at the new kid on the block. 
| gOS 1.0.1 was released earlier this month and I take a short screenshot tour 
| of this "Green" Linux OS. Check out the short flash video too.

| Based on Ubuntu 7.10 Linux system with an Enlightenment E17 interface, the 
| PC's productivity will be almost solely derived from Google applications 
| accessed through Firefox: Mail, Calendar, News, Maps and Documents & 
| Spreadsheets. It also comes with OpenOffice.org 2.2 and some other freeware 
| Linux favorates.
