Anyone Use Gos?

  1. I downloaded the 'live' disk of gos, according to what I have read, it is just UBUNTU with Enlightnment as the GUI. The reason I switiched to opesSUSE, was that I could not stand Gnome (sp?). It LOOKS good, but the functionality/useability was just not working for me.


    Last night I downloaded gos and I am now running the live disk now, so far the only quirk I have found was the spell checker in FireeFox does not work correctly, but that could be a live disk issue.


    One of the main reasons I like gos is that it runs FAST! It is faster on the live cd, then OpenSUSE is installed!



    So I want to switch, and I am one click away to install it, but I wanted to ask here to see if anyone had a real negative about it.




    Thanks!

    I have gOS installed in Virtual PC 2007.

    I only use it for running the CLI. Sometimes Windows just doesn't cut it.

    It does what I need it too.

    Although getting the mouse to install was a hassle! You have to edit the boot kernel.
