OSNews, Generic OSes A new Ubuntu-based Linux distribution has arrived, aimed at both Linux newbies and content creators. Boasting "out of the box" multimedia codecs, the freely downloadable PC/OS incorporates the lightweight XFCE desktop, and is said to offer a similar layout to the groundbreaking, but ultimately doomed BeOS.

Cloning the BeOS

" PC/OS is not meant to be a ground up reimplementation of BeOS. I use the BeOS as symbolism. BeOS was a very simple system that was just enough to hit the right spot. I did the same with PC/OS, I hope. I have the BeOS theme and look because basically I loved it as did one of my users when he recommended it and I made a theme for him."

My words. If you want to go knock on someones door and tell them how clueless they are for trying to recreate the BeOS with a Linux kernel, go talk to ZevenOS and tell them how cluessless and stupid they are. You all seem educated, how about you go, learn to read, read the entire site, blog and forums, ask questions instead of shooting off uninformed opinions and hate mail.
