Gnu/Darwin

1. their server is as slow as a grampa turtle,

2. the screenshots look like Afterstep/WindowMaker from what little of it i could manage to get to load in my browser, i can get that desktop with my existing Linux install

all i can say about it is i wish GNU/Darwin lots of luck (cause they will need luck) if this is ever to get much userbase with that super slow server i can imagine people close the page before it even loads up, so i will close this by saying no thanks i will check back in a later when GNU/Darwin gets some decent hardware and a faster pipe and maybe they will have something worth looking at...

HappyTrails ;)
