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.

I wanted to answer this one seperately.. as it was posted more than once

"KDE, restricted APT sources, no dev kit...the mystery Debian-based distro they are based on is obviously Lindows
Are you suggesting this new distro is a - Lacintosh :-) "

We DONT restrict KDE or APT, we provide our own repository with customized deb files that are built to integrate seamlessly with our system, as we all know apt is wonderful but can be problematic (try doing apt-get install mondo)
we wanted to help with that for the most requested packages, we are also providing a simple faq on changing the apt sources to use the std. debian sources.
