It's Lindows

KDE, restricted APT sources, no dev kit...the mystery Debian-based distro they are based on is obviously Lindows.

And the reason they won't divulge the name and locations of their developers is not because they're in the Federal Witness Protection Program like they make it sound but because they don't have any. (Except the guy in charge of running perl -pi -e 's/Lindows/ION/g;' on every file!)
