From the screenshots, I cannot be totally sure about what it is based on, but the File Manager looks SO MUCH like Xandros file manager, and probably is.

IMO that's an excellent decision because half of what made xandros 2 so successful was this thing.
Referring to the guy who suggested MEPIS, I had this feeling too.
