    This Linux is coming this fall, most likely in October. Anyone excited?

    it is certainly worth testing out on a VM. but personally i dont think it will make for a better desktop than mint.

    Linux Mint 14 “Nadia”. I was agreeing with your "Mint" comment. Currently Mint 13's name is "Maya" :toast:

    Epiphany? I would expect that choice for a leightweight distro with LXDE/XFCE/ROX desktop or the Openbox/Fluxbox/Blackbox WMs, not with a GNOME 3.x based distro. Epiphany is pretty much like IE 6 or so but then with Gecko instead of the IE engine. It would not matter much for me (replacing it with something else) but it may be repelling new users.

    Rhythmbox is a good choice though.

    You would think they would continue on with firefox. But it seems they are moving away from the norms with this spin of the buntu. I use Chrome anyway so it really doesn't matter to me either.

    I'm pretty excited. Those who aren't likely fail to understand the awesomeness that is GNOME. Prepare the spike traps and the burning oil, Gnome fortress is upon us!

    Is there something special about this distro? or is it just cuz it come's preinstalled with a few good programs that people like? if that is it then its nothing to brag about.
