Original OSNews Interviews What happens when ex-Lycoris employees join a Linux-friendly hardware computer reseller? Apparently, a new desktop Linux distro with a kick: the hardware that comes with it is meant to give you the Apple experience. ION Linux is a Debian-based distro that is meant to work well with the hardware it sells with. Read on for our interview with Element Computer's Mike Hjorleifsson (one of the founders and CTO) regarding their new upcoming products and a screenshot of ION.

Element Computer:The distribution is Debian based, and built on top of another outstanding distribution which we are not a liberty to name just yet.

Smells like Lindows. If it's Debian-based, why did they go and make their own "software upgrade function"? Oh, because of "intergration." To me, it sounds a lot like Lindows' software warehouse scheme.
